Beyond Shropshire..

This isn’t strictly Shropshire related, but following on from some photographic success in the British Wildlife Photography Awards earlier this year when I won the Video category with a short film following a family of Great Crested Grebes in Telford, I have this week learned that I have been awarded the overall winners prize in the Outdoor Photographer of the Year competition for an image of a group of Bison in a blizzard that I photographed in the magnificent Yellowstone National Park in the USA earlier this year.  Not only that but in the process another image of some Sandhill Cranes at dawn also won the Birds related category in the same competition – so it all means another trip down to the smoke in London in the new year to collect some prizes!  Along with bringing Wild Shropshire to the market I’ll certainly be remembering 2011 for the right reasons.

Here are said Bison and Cranes: I hope you enjoy the images!
