If you’re shellshocked from all earthquake disaster reporting, these peaceful images may provide a little relief.

You can view the winners of the annual Wellcome Image awards either at the Wellcome Image Awards website (click ‘View the gallery’) or on this excellent BBC slideshow. The slideshow jazzes things up a little with sound and moving the images around, but the stills are superb on their own. You’ll also get more information about the images on the Wellcome site. Larger copies of the images can be seen by clicking on the images at the Wellcome site (and below). As a teaser, I’ve included two below.

Try guess what this before you click on the image to find out:
