Ness Botanic Gardens Photography Exhibition opens in Liverpool

The Ness Botanic Gardens Photography Competition 2014 Exhibition has opened at the World Museum, Liverpool. The free exhibition is located on the fourth floor and will run until Sunday 20 September 2015.

This year's exhibition comprises of the sixteen inspirational garden, plant and wildlife images which won or were highly commended in the 2014 competition.

The overall winning image was taken by University Lecturer John Maloney -Eucalyptus Yellowwho said of his photograph, 'I was particularly interested in the abstract bark patterns of the tree and in the midsummer's evening light that was illuminating the background trees and plants.'

Every year, the Gardens hold a Photography Competition inviting all their visitors, adults and children, to take up their cameras and seek out the most striking images to help capture the beauty of Ness.

Local student, Lisa McGrady entered her images after deciding to photograph the Ness's vegetable and fruit garden, the Potager, to see how everything had developed and changed. Lisa, who won the 10-17 category said 'I like the vibrant colours portrayed in the image, which for me, capture the essence of summer'.

The 2015 Competition opened in March with four adult categories -Plants, Gardens, Wildlife and Abstract and twocategories; one for children under the age of 10 and one for photographers between the ages of 10 and 17.
