A picture of the vast ecological region known as the Cerrado in Brazil has won first place in this year's International Garden Photographer of the Year. Marcio Cabral of Brasilia, Brazil, scooped the award with his winning image entitled Cerrado Sunrise.
I realize it's not much to post on, but the photography is exceptional.
FTA: ""Tyrone McGlinchey, managing director of IGPOTY said: "Marcio has captured a spectacular vision of plant life in the Cerrado, displaying the beautiful flowers of Paepalanthus chiquitensis, stretching out on countless filaments towards the first light of the rising sun."
Gardens and landscape scenes from all around the world have also been commended in the competition, showing nature in all seasons. From rolling hills of golden rice in China to a flower-smelling hamster in Austria, take a look at a selection of winning images."
