Semi Finalist in Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2011

Wildlife POTY 2011
Another fantastic surprise to be a semi finalist for a second year. I put different images in this year and had 4 into the semi's. Another step towards that goal of getting an image in the book/exhibition. For me an achiement that I couldn't have envisaged 5 years ago. Roll on next year when the competition returns !!!! The image here is of the setting suns last rays as it appears beyond the mountain skyline in the Lofoten Islands in February 2011. The other 3 images were " Sniffing the air " European Brown Bear cubs, " Family outing " Female Brown Bear and cubs at dawn, " Inspecting " European Brown Bear portrait, these are to be seen in the Natural World section of this website.
