Commended in Landscape Photographer of the Year!

A few months ago I found out that 5 of my drone images had been shortlisted for the Landscape Photographer of the Year competition. I was extremely excited to receive an email on Friday saying that 3 images have been commended in the competition.

I don't normally set 'life goals' but last year I said to myself "someday I will get an image in the book, I don't care if it takes 5, 10 or 15 years, I will get in!". I cannot quite believe that, not only did I achieve my goal within a year, but that 3 images were selected! There are figures quoted that around 18,000-20,000 images are submitted to the competition each year and I feel it makes my success even more remarkable!

My 'Intersection' photograph taken at the Pocklington Canal will be appearing in print at the London exhibition in Waterloo from 21st November until the 5th February next year. The Landscape Photographer of the Year book is on sale today containing all of the wining 153 images.
