Nature’s Best – Highly Honoured Award – WILDLIFE

Sunday, January 26th, 2014

I am delighted to have received this photography award in the post this weekend.

My image of a Galapagos Tortoise is a “Highly Honoured Winner” in the 2013 Nature’s Best Photography awards. I don’t do a lot of Black and White images so it was a very pleasant surprise to see my image printed in the 2013 Awards book together with a shiny certificate.


I am not certain if every image in the book appears in the Smithsonian Exhibition Hall in Washington DC. If you do happen to visit the exhibition then I would appreciate to know if a print of this tortoise hangs on their wall…

BirdGuides Photo of the Year 2012 – Runner up…

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

I am delighted to be able to announce that I am a Runner Up in the 2012 BirdGuides Photo of the Year.

This is the second consecutive year that one of my images has been selected for this annual competition. By my estimate, no less than 50,000 bird images have been uploaded to BirdGuides over the course of 2012. To be one of the top 10 selected photographs is personally very rewarding and humbling.

The winning image is superb and is one that I had previously commented as a worthy winner when it was uploaded to their website back in December 2012. Here is a link to that winning image and the article on BIRDGUIDES PHOTO OF THE YEAR 2012.

Here is my runners up image. A Little Owl running…
