Sunnyside Gardens


Highly Commended 4 – Garden Views

Sunnyside Garden is a private garden in Grenada, open for tours and special appointments only. It features an artificial pond created especially for Koi carp approximately 15 years ago. I dropped fish food several times in various spots, then photographed using a long exposure, to allow fish movement to register. They created long colour smudges like wet brush strokes.

Nikon D90, 20mm lens, 1/5sec at f/18, ISO 100, polarising filter. Shot on a tripod with infrared remote. Post-capture: parts of image saturated and darkened, image sharpened.
