Down At The Boathouse
(Honourable Mention in the 2012 International Photography Awards landscape category, as part of my 'Sand, Sea & Silence' set of five photographs)
I'm incredibly honoured to announce that one of my shots ('Monopoly' - elsewhere on my photostream) has been commended by the judges in the Landscape Photographer Of The Year 2011 competition, and as a result will be printed in the annual awards book and displayed as a print at The National Theatre in London between 05/12/11 and 18/02/12.
I'd like to congratulate some of my immensely talented contacts here on flickr whom I know have also enjoyed successes in the competition this year - Giles McGarry, Jeff Vyse, Gary Newman, Michael Diblicek, Chris Friel, and Doug Chinnery. If you're not familiar with any of these guys (where have you been?!) then I'd urge you to check out their work - you won't be disappointed...
Very well done also to another flickr contact Angus Clyne, who took the highly prestigious runner up place in the 'classic view' category. Lastly, but by no means least, many congratulations to Robert Fulton who took the ultimate accolade of Landscape Photographer Of the Year 2011. You can see his winning shot, together with more of his skilled work at www.rfultonphotos.com/.
