The Beauty of Plants

Achieving great images of plants and beautiful flowers requires skill, passion and commitment. This category celebrates the ephemeral beauty of the plant – from seed to compost. Plant portraiture is all about capturing the very essence, or character, of a plant. This could be a rambling rose, a humble bluebell, an exotic tree peony or the delicate flower head of a grass. A single bloom in isolation can be admired for its uniqueness or beautiful flowers celebrated for their form and colour.

Macro Photography by Henrik Spranz

In conversation with Henrik Spranz
Vienna-based wildlife and nature photographer Henrik Spranz specialises in macro photography with more than a touch of magic realism. It’s not by accident that his world takes us on a flight of fancy into a different, more ethereal place, and gives him a creative break from the day job.
