Botanic Gardens, Gardens in Focus

The winning images from the Gardens in Focus photographic competition in 2010 have been placed on banners and are currently displayed in the Royal Botanic Gardens. This banner is located close to the "Boy Extracting Thorn" sculpture. The competition features photographs that capture the living essence of a botanic garden. Parts of the botanic gardens remain quite green, even in the middle of Autumn. I featured another banner on display near the Main Pond here.
