Judges' winning photographs

Rank: Winner
Photographer: James Maguire
Title: Shelter
Description: I do have a passion for nature photography, and on this rainy Saturday morning I just felt an urge to be closer to nature. Dunham Massey is a beautiful and ancient deer park, but I stumbled across this swan and sat with him for about an hour with no one around. We were both soaked through but happy, and I managed to take some nice shots at the same time!

 

Rank: Runner-up
Photographer: Matthew Light
Title: Dawn at Newlands
Description: This image was captured just after sunrise on a perfectly still, crisp autumn morning. The sun had just started to burn off the low lying mist, which had settled in the valleys of the Surrey Hills. The symmetry of the trees in the foreground is what first drew me to this composition. However, it is the sense of calm which I really wanted to capture — a moment of serenity only 20 miles from the chaos of the capital.

 

Rank: Joint 3rd
Photographer: Georgina Harper
Title: Duckling under
Description : I went for a walk at Forest Farm nature reserve near my house after work.  Despite it being June, it was unseasonably rainy and cold.  As I walked along beside the canal, just ahead of me was this little family sheltering from the cold and rain – a very tender moment as the ducklings huddled together under their mother’s wings to keep warm and dry.  Seconds later they wriggled free, and the moment was gone.

Title: Not all who wander are lost
Description: I like to walk Dartmoor to relax and escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.  I was completely blown away by the peace and calm of this area and was very lucky to have it all to myself, well apart from the horse. This image represents all that I love about Dartmoor… the isolation, the wildlife, the sounds and the most amazing colours, nature at its absolute finest.

 

Rank: Joint 3rd
Photographer: Nick Carter
Title: Fish supper
Description: I am a keen amateur photographer with a strong interest in wildlife photography, and have been following the Osprey project at Rutland for several years both observing and trying to get that illusive shot. I have many pictures of the Ospreys on the nest at Rutland, but this is the one shot I have been working towards and was hoping for.

Public's winning photographs

Rank: Winner
Photographer: Lauren Cresser
Title: Deer double vision
Description: I thought a trip to Bushy Park might be invigorating and a good opportunity to take the camera for a spin… The day started dull, grey and cold but I decided to brave the elements anyway. Needless to say, after a 2 hour walk with no photographs worth mentioning, a reviving cup of coffee and cake was required for both the mind and spirit. Just as I was walking back however, two stags (or is it three?!) came into view and I quickly managed to capture the moment – and the illusion!

 

Rank: Runner-up
Photographer: James Arnold
Title: Airbone
Description: About two years ago I became hooked on wildlife. My real passion is for owls and kingfishers, so I decided to make a trip to Dumfries to a site I know they visit. It was a very exciting day, and I was able to capture a number of lovely photos of the beautiful kingfisher. I especially wanted to capture their tremendous speed as they came out of the water with a fish, and was lucky enough to capture the right moment with this particular photo.

 

Rank: 3rd
Photographer: Gerald Robinson
Title: The long road home
Description: I spotted this herd of cows with the farmer as they were walking down the road in the distance. I was hoping they would be coming my way so I parked my car and waited. I wanted to capture them as they came up the hill with the road in the background to give the viewer some perspective as to the distance they had covered on their way to the grazing field.

 

Rank: 4th
Photographer: Gerald Robinson
Title: Red deer watching the Sunset
Description: I was walking with our daughter and young Labrador. Just as the sun was setting, I spotted these two wild red deer on the hill in the distance, I think it was a female with her young. They just seemed to be watching the sunset, so I quickly took a couple of photos and then they were gone. When we got home and viewed the images my daughter said the picture reminded her of the Disney film Bambi.
