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…

Happy New year = New Front Cover…

Sunday, January 12th, 2014

Happy New Year everyone.

The new year has stared fairly quietly in terms of photographic opportunities. The winter season in the UK has still not arrived and the majority of days this year have been wet, grey and lacking in light. Not the best conditions for image generation.

However, my optimism and energy for 2014 rapidly improved when the January edition of “Bird Watching” magazine dropped onto the door mat. The Kestrel image on the front cover was one of mine…

It is always nice to see one of my images in print but when they grace the front cover of a magazine it is a very special feeling…
