“Garlic Chive Seedheads in Winter Landscape” Finalist in the 4 Seasons Category.

This shot was taken on my organic allotment last December. There had been really heavy snow the night before. I went up to the allotment to photograph and these garlic chive seedheads immediately caught my eye. They looked so fragile but were obviously really tough as they were still clinging on to their valuable seed. I used my 100mm macro lens to just concentrate on the seedhead in the foreground, knocking the rest out of focus, which created  beautiful pattern and shape.
