I was delighted to be contacted by Historic Scotland informing me I was one of their winners in the Scotsman/Historic Scotland photographic competition. We were invited to the opening of the exhibition at Stirling Castle on the 12th of December, but unfortunately we could not attend the event at short notice. We did, however visit Stirling Castle today to see my winning image and the other entrants on display.
My image is in Historic Scotland’s 2013 Calendar.
This is a short video clip of the exhibition. We waited until everyone had left the room

I entered Kodaks “your favourite location” competition on ephotozine with my Loch Leven sunset image on April, and won a Kodak hero 7.1 printer which I am delighted with. The judge from Kodak had this to say about my winning image ”The simplicity of the photo just makes this look such a serene and peaceful place to be. Whenever I get stressed in the office, I will dig this photo back out!”
I was thrilled to be asked by Amatuer photographer magazine for a selection of my images for possible publication in their magazine. They selected a few of my wildlife shots which included a Tiger longwing butterfly, Chaffinch in flight, Puffin portrait and a Starling feeding it’s young. This was Published in the March 10th issue which was out on the 6th March. I also won a Vanguard GH-100 ball head as I recieved the Editors choice award for my Butterfly shot, and was very pleased with that too.
This was dpreview’s first prize competition with over 3000 entries. I entered my “Lone tree, Sunset” image and won this Tamron SP AF28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di lens.
