Captured by André Botha, this image of golden islands on a carbon substrate was one of the Highly Commended entries in the “Science as Art” category in the 2003 Southern African Science Lens (SA Science Lens) photography competition.

Organised and sponsored by the South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement (SAASTA), the SA Science Lens competition has been going since 2002. From portraying science in our everyday lives or showing something not visible to the naked eye to simply showing the beauty of science – there have been many striking images that have come out of the now biennial competition.
