Malvern Spring Show

I’m always on the lookout for interesting plants that might make good subjects for my style of photography, and the Malvern Spring Show is one of those horticultural events that provides plenty of inspiration. This year was I was attracted by the Gold Medal winning display of cacti from Southfield Nurseries.  These are exactly the sorts of plants that have the patterns, textures and colours that can be explored with my macro lenses.

Here are four photos that I took at the show:
