Bougainvillea with blue wall

Todos Santos, Baja Sur, Mexico

Commended 2 – Plant Portraits

This photograph is about the magic of the relationship between colours. I first saw the image from a distance, looking down a dusty Mexican street. The deep pink bougainvillea, illuminated from the side by the intense Mexican light, with the background of blue stucco, was stunning. This flowering shrub, highlighted by the metal-framed window, completed a beautiful composition in colour and form.
