Environmental and garden photography

Here’s a short slideshow with a very slimmed-down, curated set of some of my favourite subjects: garden photography with close-up intricate details of flowers, fruits and plants; large vistas and wide landscapes in all weathers; the horticultural environment and those who work with it.
