18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Backlit cyclamen flower

I used spectral light coming from a prism to bathe this cyclamen flower in the full colours of the rainbow. Like many photographers I initially struggled to be creative during the COVID-19 lockdown. I convinced myself that home confinement was incompatible with a creative life but as the weeks went by I proved myself wrong. I used a prism and the sunny days of spring to look at flowers under (literally) a different light.
