The Geological Society of London has announced the 12 winners of its photography competition called “Our Restless Earth”. The chosen images represent the dynamic processes which have shaped the UK and Ireland over its tectonic history, from ancient volcanic activity to ice age glaciers. Fantastic cinematic photographies that show incredible places around in the wild of the UK.
You will be able to see the pictures in a free exhibition at the Geological Society to mark Earth Science Week, 7-15 October.
