I am sorry I have been so quiet this year. As I am sure you can understand, the past 18 months has been incredibly tough and there has been a lot of change. I took an extended break away from social media and updating my blog.
However I am absolutely delighted to announce that I have WON the Birds category in the prestigious MONTPHOTO photography competition. My image 'A Beakful' focuses on a puffin in the verdant vegetation of Skomer Island with a beak crammed with fish. This is a massive honour and something I am incredibly proud of - the competition was exceptional, with some huge names among the winners.
The excellent Will Burrard-Lucas won the Mammals and Overall prizes, while I must make a special mention of good friend Kevin Morgans who has had an incredible year in numerous competitions. He had an image and a portfolio entry feature as a Highly Commended.
I must pass on my congratulations to all the other winners including Jaime Culebras, Marc Graf and Imre Potyo.
