CAP­TUR­ING NA­TURE’S BEAUTY

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - EVENTS -

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.
