Recently I entered a photography competition, as this was one of my New Year's resolutions. So I am very pleased to report that I took runner up in my first photography competition. My image is called "Peel and Eat" and is a macro image of a dried seed pod for want of a better term. This plant was found in a field of wild flowers and I have no idea what it is, but it looked like a veiny balloon. When I brout it home to shoot, I peeled it open on one side to see what it contained and inside was a developing ball of what I can only assume were seeds. I was really drawn to the way the pod encased the seeds and the way in which the seeds attached to the pod and explored that in this image.
The photo contest was through Chasing the Light and my submission was for the Macro Photography - Small Things Matter competition, which can be found via the following link: http://chasingthelight.photoshelter.com/gallery-image/MACRO-PHOTOGRAPHY-SMALL-THINGS-MATTER-WINNERS/G0000fz7wGNjRT9o/I0000uFTjaQCtqmo
