I’m very pleased that one of my underwater gannet shots has been Highly Commended in this year’s European Wildlife Photography Awards and chosen as the cover for the competition book.

This one of my favourite gannet shots being quite engaging and eye-catching. It’s actually the same bird as that entering the water in my Half-In, Half-Out’ shot which was Highly Commended in the BWPA 2012 competition. Unable to attend the awards, Alex Mustard was kind enough to send me a photo of my picture at the exhibition in Lunen, Germany.
