APHO­TOG­RA­PHER who cap­tured an en­chant­ing shot of a shriv­elled bloom has been com­mended at a na­tional com­pe­ti­tion.

Brian Law pho­tographed an un­opened plant bud when he ac­ci­den­tally knocked it off when he was gar­den­ing.

And his eye for de­tail has been com­mended af­ter he sub­mit­ted it into a com­pe­ti­tion at the South­port Flower Show.

Brian, 62, from Bro­ken Cross, said: “I knocked the un­opened bud off the plant with a lawn mower when cut­ting the grass. I took it into the house left it on the side- board for a cou­ple of days but took a few shots of it as it grad­u­ally un­furled.

“I used a sheet of white mount board as the back­ground and avail­able light from the win­dow with the cam­era tri­pod mounted.”

Brian’s pic­ture was com­mended a sec­tion of the com­pe­ti­tion judged by ra­dio 4’s Gardern­ers’ Ques­tion Time pan­el­list Ste­fan Bucza­cki.

Brian has been a mem­ber of Mac­cles­field Cam­era Club for more than 10 years and re­cently re­tired as its pres­i­dent.

As well as his com­men­da­tion, Brian also re­ceived two com­ple­men­tary tick­ets to the South­port Show where he re­ceived his cer­tifi­cate from Pro­fes­sor Bucza­cki.
