2016 has been quite a good competition year for me what with various images doing well in the Scottish Nature Photography Awards, the Food Photographer of the Year (an odd one I know) and the Underwater Photographer of the Year.

However, the other day I found out I was recently selected as overall winner of British Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2016 with my photo of a lion’s mane jelly fish (taken whilst working at St Kilda). All I can say is it’s online drugstore no prescription really a surprise and honour to be selected among so many high quality entries.

The image was also selected as winner of the Coast & Marine category.


Not only that, I also had two images Highly Commended in the same category, also taken on the same survey trip.

And just to top it off I had this image of a gannet mother and chick, taken at North Rona, selected for the BWPA book.
