The author’s description:

Title: ‘Tapestry’ Evening light wove a beautiful tapestry in the Wojsławice Arboretum. I had planned to photograph a typical sunset from the hill, but as soon as I turned around, I saw a golden wall of tall conifers with the sun hiding behind them. The backlit borders and house visible in the distance added to create a magical, fairy tale atmosphere.

Title: ‘Daylilies & Cherries’

This National Collection of Hemerocallis (daylily) at Wojsławice has more than 3,000 varieties present – making it Poland’s largest and one of Europe’s largest collections.

The view of the blooming daylilies stretched like coloured ribbons on the hilly terrain and I was fascinated by the contrast between the daylilies and the purple foliage of the cherry trees, which when combined created a magic of their own.
