Exhibition at Plas Newydd

Exhibition dates this year are April 7th to May 18th at Plas Newydd, the National Trust property on Anglesey.  I exhibited there last year  and it’s a great venue. Lovely setting next to the Menai Straits. Both framed and mounted work will be on sale.

Shortlisted Image ‘ Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year’

I was notified about this today……think I am going for a hat-trick this year! Shortlisted in three major competitions….to get any further requires a good deal of luck as there are so many great images out there…the final selection must be an absolute nightmare for the judges. Unable to reveal which image, but should know sometime in January if I made the final selection, so fingers crossed….again:-)

Landscape Photographer of the Year 2015 – shortlisted image

Received this in my inbox last week…..‘We are delighted to tell you that you have reached the shortlist of the Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards for 2015′. 

I have just sent in a large resolution file of the shortlisted image (unable to share which one at present due to competition  organiser request), along with the original RAW file.

The competition is strong with over 20,000 images submitted. To be shortlisted is a great achievement. I have to now wait until the end of October before I know whether my image has won any awards, or will even feature in the book which would be fantastic!  Fingers crossed…..
