When Darkness Falls in the Garden

  • Prize

When darkness falls, our eyes cannot experience the amazing, beautiful elements of nature. Shooting at night, I created this series of images to show the night life of plants. Employing modern technology, I layered together dozens of images in focus stacks to achieve a bees-eye view showing the intricate details and forms of flowers. Some of these flowers are the size of your fingernail.
