Winning photos from the 2015 SLAC physics photowalk

The SLAC Photowalk took a group of 17 photographers, ranging from amateur to professional, behind the scenes to photograph SLAC's world-class science facilities, including the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) X-ray laser and the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL). For more details and to see winning photos from the other participating labs, visit the Global Physics Photowalk page at Interactions.org.
