Rosanna Castrini | My Prairie Garden

International Garden Photographer of the Year
Rosanna Castrini | My Prairie Garden

Rosanna CastriniWhat the judges said:
“We all love single plant portraits – but it is much more difficult to make a successful picture of many plants together in association. To me, this picture is as close to perfection as you can get. I love the contrasting shapes and textures of the three types of flower. All the plants are in perfect condition. The photographer has recognised a very skilful piece of planting and has made a straightforward rendering of it, in lovely light and with no tricks.” — Andrew Lawson

Un cœur dans le ciel

Des étourneaux en migration forment un cœur dans le ciel
Pendant la période de migration, avant de se poser pour la nuit, les étourneaux ont pour habitude de se livrer à une sorte de ballet aérien.
Des nuées d’oiseaux impressionnantes qui prennent parfois des formes inattendues comme le montre ce cliché pris le 12 février par le photographe de l’AFP Menahem Kahana dans le désert du Néguev, en Israël.
