Light Space and Time photography competition

I have just discovered that one of the images I entered for the 2017 Light Space and Time competition on the theme of “Botanical and floral art” has gained a special recognition mention.

“The art competition and the submission process for the artists began in June 2017 and concluded on July 27, 2017. The gallery received 720 entries from 17 different countries from around the world, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, France, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, Scotland, South Africa, Sweden, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom. In addition, the gallery received entries from 37 different states.

The exhibition has been divided into three media categories. Painting & Other Media, Photography & Digital Media and 3 Dimensional Art. In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) best entries comprised from the 3 media categories.

The gallery also included Special Merit awards and Special Recognition awards for outstanding art. Many of the artists in either of these groups could have easily been included in the upper tier of our winners, as their art was also exceptional.”

I feel very honoured.

YouTube also hosts galleries of the winning images in past competitions.

Cityscape – Bristol’s churches

The city of Bristol in the UK is blessed with an extraordinary number of churches, many still standing but many in ruins and falling into disrepair.  At one time there were about two hundred within close reach of the city centre. These provide an Aladdin’s cave of photo opportunities.

Hauser and Wirth garden

A couple of months ago we visited the Hauser and Wirth art gallery and perennial meadow garden, designed by Piet Oudholf. It is in Somerset, UK.

A perfect place for taking interesting photos…..

Landscape in Northern Cyprus

Thistles are widespread in arid landscapes and always provide interesting shapes just waiting to be photographed
