Photographer: Claudia Gaupp (see profile)
Competition: Competition 16

Category: European Garden Photography Award

Location: Luisenpark, Mannheim, Baden-Württemberg, Germany


I visited Luisenpark last May when the rhododendrons were in full bloom. Shortly before sunset, the light fell on the venerable Metasequoia glyptostroboides (dawn redwood) trees, and suddenly transformed this part of the bustling city park into an enchanted fairy-tale forest. I sought a perspective with the camera that focused on the glow of the trees, whilst allowing for a pleasing composition.
