International Garden Photographer of the Year

Robert Marchegian-  1st place – Trees, Woods and Forests– Location: Atchafalaya Basin, Louisiana, United States.

“The Louisiana wetlands are a giant tangle of canals, swamps and forests of palm and cypress trees that encompass the great Mississippi estuary. Populated by numerous snakes, alligators, birds and venomous spiders, the often-hostile environment is capable of stunning beauty. Every day at dawn and dusk we motored out on a small swamp boat – the only way to get around the bayou – looking for the best light and conditions. A fog finally descended around a singular majestic cypress (Taxodium), framed by the other trees and adorned with Spanish moss.”
