Wildscape magazine Wildlife Artist of the Year 2010


I am delighted not to say surprised to learn that i have won the Wildscape magazine Wildlife Artist of the Year 2010 competition with my image 'The Egret pool'.I had almost forgotten that i had entered the competition way back at the start of the year and didnt seriously expect a graphite piece to win and so i am totally chuffed at the prospect of this image hanging(virtually)in the Wildscape Hall of Fame.
