CAPTURING NATURE’S BEAUTY
It may be pretty chilly to get out in the garden right now, but the temperature needn't stop you catching a glimpse of some breathtaking photos of gardens. After bidding a fond farewell to its Bagpuss & Co exhibition recently, Sissinghurst Castle Garden will now play host to the International Garden Photographer of the Year Exhibition.
It features a collection of awardwinning photographs of natural garden photography at the home of one of the county’s most exquisite gardens. From portrait to panorama, and quirky to amusing, they reflect the everlasting appeal of the garden and vividly showcase images of a green planet, and were taken by both amateur and professional photographers from across the globe.
Categories include the Beauty of Plants, Wildlife in the Garden and Wildflower Landscapes among others.
Kate Shaw, events and marketing manager said: “We are really excited to be hosting the exhibition again this year. There’s a great set of images to see, alongside the handiwork of our garden team who have helped to bring a little of the outdoors inside. They’ve been busy drying flowers all year and designing their own work of art to make it a truly unmissable exhibition.’’
The pictures will be on show from Saturday, February 17 to Friday, April 13.
