Congratulations to @marcio_cabral_photography ,overall winner of the International Garden Photographer of the Year Competition 11. The image entitled, Cerrado Sunrise, was shot in the vast ecological region known as the cerrado in Brazil. Marcio said: "It is critical to shine a light on the wonder of these plants and take steps to preserve the unique beauty of the cerrado ecosystem. I intensified the natural glow of sunrise by increasing the contrast between the flowers and grass." See the launch exhibition of winners @kewgardens until March 11 2018.
