The International Garden Photographer of the Year Award

The IGPOTY award for 2010 has been won by Marianne Majerus, with this breathtaking image (left). The judges said, "This is a magical moment in the garden, perfectly seen and brilliantly captured. From one corner of the frame a fan of sunlight slants down through the early-morning mist. The spiky flowerheads make another diagonal leading off into the opposite corner. The sharp foliage in the foreground makes a contrast with the hazy trees behind. Altogether a delicious picture."
