Clematis Poof, a macro image of clematis seed, won an honorable mention in the Black & White category. In its dried form, the clematis seed head’s feathery wisps form a swirling globe – until a gust of wind separates and carries each tendrilled seed away to start a new life in the spring. A tiny poof of order and chaos lives at the heart of every clematis blossom.
Valley Ridge With Waxing Gibbous Moon earned second place in the Infrared Landscape category. This image encapsulates a lovely memory of a summer afternoon hike in our gorgeous East Bay hills under a nearly full moon.
These prizes both come with some great new infrared gear that I’ve had my eye on for a while. I’m honored to have my work considered and chosen for these awards among many excellent entries from around the world. Thank you, Kolari!
