I had an email on Saturday saying that my image, "Bowdown Berries", has won the Your View category of the Take a View, Landscape Photographer of the Year competition, I also had another image from Murlough Dunes commended as well.
I have visited the exhibition every year and have taken great inspiration from the amazing images that are always on display. I have entered the competition a few times over the years, but this is the first time i've had anything accepted for the Exhibition and Book.
To say I am chuffed is an understatement!

I am really please to say that my image of Star Trail over the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland has been selected for inclusion in the Exhibition taking place at the Royal Observatory Greenwich till the 22 February 2015 and is also included in the book.
The competition attracted a record 1700 entries and had images from astrophotographers in over 50 countries from as far afield as Colombia, Hong Kong, New Zealand and the Philippines. There were some fantastic images submitted and I was very pleased to be included in such illustrious company.

I managed to get out and about in the freshly fallen snow this morning down at Bowdown Woods. This is a take on a composition i've taken a few times in the past.
My Step-son Ryan came with his camera and we had a good time wandering round the woods before retiring to the local McDonalds to warm up.
The scene a few weeks ago enveloped in mist
... and again a couple of months ago with the bracken in full autumnal colour

A quick trip to my local woods to get an image of this scene with a covering of snow.
I didn’t want to hang around too much this afternoon as I thought I might get stuck in the car park! It was a shame really as there was some nice images to be made - roll on tomorrow..
