There are four categories:
We want to celebrate all things great and small at the Arboretum, so the first challenge is to get up close to nature on our site, capturing the tiny details.
Nature very rarely stands still at the Arboretum, we would love you to capture its movement on site, such as a rabbit hopping, or plants swaying in the wind.
A shot of the Arboretum’s landscape and its nature. Thinking about the composition, why not show exactly what you can capture on your phone. The more imaginative the better.
It’s up to you. Your choice of what interests you about the nature at the Arboretum. You could use props, light photography, long exposures, or a simple snap shot that sum up your enjoyment of nature. It’s your choice.
You can enter each of these challenges, but can submit no more than two photographs per challenge.

Memories in Snow
This photo was taken when we came to visit. Unfortunately we couldn't go to far because of the snow. But I captured this photo in what I thought it showed a different view, giving tranquility, peaceful and a calming scene.
