Competition: Competition 7
Category: Macro Art
Location: Cowbridge Physic Garden, Vale of Glamorgan, Wales, United Kingdom


I regularly visit the Physic Garden in Cowbridge to photograph the stunning variety of plants; however I am frequently defeated by the ever-present South Wales winds which make conditions hugely challenging for macro photography. Eventually to address this, I constructed a portable wind shelter using 4 sheets of A2 clear perspex joined together with flexible tape hinges which can be (carefully) arranged around the subject to provide some shelter with minimal impact on lighting.
