The Ballerinas by Magdalena Wasiczek

Attracting more than 20,000 entries from both professional and amateur photographers, and with categories covering a single bloom to a sweeping landscape, the International Garden Photographer of the Year winner was announced last Friday.

Beeseye are delighted to congratulate Magdalena Wasiczek for her stunning image titled ‘The Ballerinas’.

What the judges said:

“This stunning image of Hydrangea petiolaris is a worthy winner of IGPOTY. What I particularly like about the shot is the way the photographer has melted the rich purples and oranges of the hydrangea into the out of focus background, creating a delicious melange of colours. The focus on the single delicate hydrangea flower is spot on, creating a striking and unusual winter portrait”.

Clive Nichols, IGPOTY judge

The full exhibition is now on show at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, until the 6th April. It will then tour the UK and Europe.

If you share Beeseye Fine Art’s love of nature inspired imagery, it’s well worth a visit.
