James Ottobre captures both the light and color in his organic garden with an artist's eye.
"My organic garden is in Inverness, California, and the total planted area is one acre. The landscape includes both flowers and vegetables. I approach the garden as a seasonal art installation, looking for the most vibrant colors available for each season. The beds are arranged with vegetables and flowers for the most visual impact using both heirloom and hybrid varieties. The garden brings me new experiences every day. As the sun passes over, the light changes in the garden, so I keep the camera nearby to capture the mood and light transition."
