06 tapestry of life by dorin bofan Winner 2017, plants and Fungi
Drawn to the gentle curve at the base of the rock face – like the ‘moss-covered trunk of a veteran tree in a damp ancient wood’ – Dorin composed his picture, waiting until a break in the clouds yielded this brief moment in a timeless landscape, cloaked in Arctic alpine vegetation.
