Koos van der Lende's Highly Commended image of a Welwitschia in Namibia

Photographer Koos van der Lende and I were in two minds about entering this image into the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards. We both absolutely love this image he took of a welwitschia in Namibia, but we knew it broke the conventional rules of photography by including the sun flare. The judges, however, saw its beauty and loved it too, awarding Koos Highly Commended in the In Praise of Plants category. It was one of two awards he won in that category this year.
