August’s Picture This Photo Contest continues our tradition of having extremely talented photographers as judges. We’re delighted that David Perry is our judge for this last full month of summer. Any of us in the gardening world who are familiar with David’s work know what an extraordinary talent he is: with a wide range of subject matter. For those of you who don’t know David, this is an opportunity to familiarize yourself with him and his work. David also has a thoughtful and multi-layered blog.
This month’s prize from High Country Gardens is a selection of late summer-blooming perennials. And what could be better than these plants to liven up the late summer border? As usual, David Salman has hand-picked all the plants for Picture This. We love having him involved with GGW and participating in the contest.
Below is David Perry’s choice of subject matter for this month, along with a detailed explanation of why he chose this one, as well as what he’s looking for in the winning entry.
