Highly Commended in BWPA 2016

I am delighted to announce my photograph of an Atlantic puffin was awarded highly commended in the black and white category of the British Wildlife Photography Awards 2016. This is an image I took on Skomer Island. Puffins are well known for their vibrant beaks and comical appearance, so I decided to show a more elegant side - converting the image to black and white and using a close crop to illustrate the bird cleaning itself. I was so happy to see my image alongside those of other talented photographers in London. It was great to meet likeminded people at the awards ceremony last night, and congratulations to all the other successful entrants.
