Welcome to the latest edition of Spotlight, a look at the people who make up Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

In this issue, we feature a sampling of employees who not only are scientists but also dabble in photography. But these aren’t just photos taken on vacations, these are hobbies that go beyond the norm: safaris, underwater marvels and nature at its finest.

We hope you enjoy this issue of Spotlight. We’d also like to hear from you. Send us your thoughts and suggestions, whether it’s what you like — or even if you don’t — about this magazine, or if there is something you would like to see in coming editions. You can reach us at pao [at] llnl.gov.
