An old wooden bench at Kew Gardens London. The gardens at Kew are lovingly cared for, not a weed dare show its head. The public areas superbly presented. As I walked along there was this old bench on one of the main paths set facing away from a stunning riot of colour from the flower beds behind.

John enjoys capturing images mainly around his home in the North West of England with a leaning towards land and seascapes. John also enjoys using modern processing techniques designed to give images a more in-depth feel to them. John is happy to discuss individual customers image requests.

    Ooh, yes, brilliant shot John! And love the mouldy bit at the end of the arm, and the chewed up other end! That is why I call my cat termite sometimes… I have inside furniture that looks like that…. grrrrr…. :))) Beautiful colouring on those flowers too! :))

  • Thanks Vicky. It was shot at Kew Gardens the Royal Horticultural Society. The bench just seemed so out of characture with the moss and rotting arm and that is exactly what attracted me to it.
