The story behind this image

My wife Liz is really into crafts, knitting and cooking, so when we had an over abundance of red chilli peppers growing on a small bush we keep in the conservatory she decided to make some chilli sauce, bottled as Chistmas presents.

My input into this process was to design and make the labels for the finished product, which is where this photo comes into play.

This image is of the chilli plant from which the peppers were picked to make the sauce, but the colour contrast between the red chillies and surrounding green leaves was so striking I decided to keep the image itself as a standalone picture.

The sauce is pretty spicy as well!
