It's with great pleasure that I can announce that I have come 3rd in the 'Scottish Landscape Sea and Coast' Category of the Scottish Nature Photography Awards 2014. My selected image, "Incoming Tide, Loch Sunart", was chosen in what I'm assured was a very fiercely competitive category and the one from which the eventual winner - "The Boy" by Donald Cameron which is a lovely image - came from. It's always a great feeling to have one of your images recognised in this way and, as a Scot, having success in my 'home' awards means even more. I also had an image shortlisted in the 'Land' category.
My image will be included in the national exhibition which will be touring the country as well as the book of awards. I'll post more details about those when I have them.
You can see all of the winners and their images on the Scottish Nature Photography Awards website.
I'll write a 'Making the Image' post sharing the backstory and my approach to the image shortly. In the meantime I'll leave you with the 2 images that were recognised.
