Mika Geiger Wins Our Alpha Female+ Macro Contest For Her Image, Entwined

Congratulations to Mika Geiger (@mika.geiger) for winning our Sony Alpha Female #SonyMacro contest. Mika wins a Sony ZV-1 camera for her photo, “Entwined.” The image is a true macro photo that Mika made with a Sony 90mm f/2.8 Macro G lens on her Sony Alpha α7R III when she saw this gripping scene slowly evolving in her neighbor's garden.

“As a photographer, I love capturing moments that reveal the hidden detail and tension in our natural world,” she says. “So, when I saw this vine's slow-motion, suffocating embrace of a young blossom in a neighbor's garden, I looked for a composition that would highlight the interaction. The nearly imperceptible struggle between flower and vine reminds us that nature can appear peaceful but seldom offers a break from the struggle to survive. I feel it also symbolizes those times in life when we seek to move, to grow, or to explore, but are held back by forces we don't fully perceive.”
