GARY MARLOWE | 2014IMAGES OUT OF THE ORDINARYABOUT THESE IMAGES THIS WAS MY FOURTH YEAR IN A ROW SHOOTING PRESS DAY AT THE RHS HAMPTON COURT PALACE FLOWER SHOW. ITS THE WORLDS BIGGEST FLOWER SHOW AND TAKES PLACE IN THE GROUNDS OF HENRY VIIIS PALACE BY THE THAMES. WITH ONE OR TWO EXCEPTIONS, COMPARED TO PREVIOUS YEARS, I THOUGHT THE SHOW GARDENS WERE QUITE DISAPPOINTING, WITH FEW STANDING OUT AS BEING EITHER TRULY EYE-CATCHING OR UNDERSTANDING WHAT MAKES A GARDEN PHOTOGENIC. DESPITE THE EXTRA SPACE COMPARED WITH CHELSEA, GETTING CLEAN SHOTS OF THE ENTIRE GARDENS AT HAMPTON (I.E. WITH NOTHING SPOILING THE BACKGROUND) IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE, SO I FOCUSED MY ATTENTION ON INTERESTING DETAILS AND INTERESTING PLANTING. PRESS DAY STARTED IN BRIGHT SUNSHINE AND ENDED WITH DRAB GREY SKIES AND A DOWNPOUR. THERES A LOT TO COVER IN JUST A FEW HOURS, SO ITS ALWAYS A BIG RUSH JUMPING FROM ONE SHOW GARDEN TO THE NEXT AND HOPING YOUVE NOT MISSED ANYTHING INTERESTING. THIS WAS MY FIRST HAMPTON SHOOTING WITH THE NEW OLYMPUS OMD EM1, I THINK ITS CAPTURED SOME OF THE BEST BITS AND HOPE YOU ENJOY LOOKING AT THEM!IMAGES OF THE 2014 HAMPTON COURT PALACE FLOWER SHOW !!!DESIGNED BY JIM FOGARTY, THE GARDEN WON A GOLD MEDAL aND WAS NAMED BEST SHOW GARDENTHE BUBBLES IN THE POOL WERE ACTIVATED BY HASHTAGGED TWEETSTHE ONE SHOW GARDEN DESIGNED BY COMPETITION WINNER ALEXANDRA NOBLEPLANTING ON THE JORDANS WILDLIFE GARDEN ERYNGIUM NEPTUNES GOLD ON THE BOUNCE BACK GARDENASCLEPIAS SPECIOSATHE ONE SHOW GARDEN WRATH!
