The photo above is of an Olympic swimmer that is getting ready to break out of the water.  I choose this photo as my Best of Web picture because of how clear the water around the swimmer is and how it makes him look like he is trapped in glass. This photo shows the beauty of physics and surface tension in a way that I have never seen before.  Surface tension is caused by the water molecules wanting to stay next to each other, and at the surface there are less water molecules surrounding each other which results in a stronger bound of the molecules.  This photo interested me because I have never seen surface tension shown besides filling a glass of water a little over the brim and it not spilling.

    First Place! A beautiful display of surface tension, the sheet of water encasing the swimmer makes the Olympic swimmer almost alien-like!
