I’m honoured to bring you photos from some of the winners of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year at the Natural History Museum.
As long time readers of the blog will know I love this exhibition. I haven’t seen these in person yet but I cannot wait! Here is what the Natural History Museum press release had to say about it this year…
Wildlife Photographer of the Year is produced by the Museum and is one of its most popular exhibitions. Last year, three million people across five continents saw the exhibition after it premiered in London. The exhibition celebrates 100 winning images, selected by a panel of international experts for their creativity, originality and technical excellence. Wildlife Photographer of the Year reveals the power of photography to capture the astonishing diversity of life and highlight our responsibility to protect it.The Wildlife Photographer of the Year 52 was the most competitive to date, with 50,000 entries from 95 countries. It will tour across the UK and internationally to locations such as Spain, Canada and the USA.
There are plenty of amazing underwater images. As always the exhibition does an amazing job to raise critical public awareness for creatures who cannot speak for themselves. I suspect I shall be in tears again as I go around the exhibition, do you think thats why they have it so dark with lightboxes so you can have a secret teary-eyed moment? Don’t be ashamed, go, see, cry, show support.

My yearly tradition is to review my photos from the previous year. Here is the link for previous years. So without further ado here are my top picks for this year (so far).
Top underwater photos in no particular order, I only went on one trip this year:
From my trip to a cathedral for my course.
From my trip to Hylands House:
I had too many of my lovely family too choose from so I’ll be updating this again once I’ve combed through them 🙂
Hi All, It’s been a while! Phew, just back from my first diving trip in over two years (since having my lovely daughter). I actually got back last week but the little one has not been well so we’ve been busy and sleep deprived.
Here’s a taster but I’m putting together a gallery page here. I’m experimenting with putting my pictures directly on my blog rather than pbase this time.
This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Flame’
This one sprang to mind for the theme. Coleman shrimp on a fire urchin.

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Mountainous’
This weeks theme is Mountainous so here is a belated post with a photo from our trip to Machu Picchu. One day it’d be nice to go back with a decent camera to do it justice 😉 I’m gutted I missed posting on the week when the theme was Ocean! Doh.

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Dusk’
Its been a while since I’ve posted. With my strict schedule of family time, Work time, and homework time its tricky to find the extra spare minutes to check my emails let alone squeeze out a blogpost. This weeks theme is dusk, a nice easy old one to ease me back into things. I’ll try to post more often.

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Alone’
This weeks theme is Alone. I don’t often take wistful photographs so this was a tricky theme. I liked these two though, one of Kat the Mermaid in the Red Sea and one of a lone archer fish in the Mangroves of Raja Ampat (where I was along for a bit too until I got spooked and went to find the others, didn’t want to be croc bait lol).

Happy Valentines day everyone!
This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Tranquil’
I dropped the ball the last few weeks for Photofriday (too much studying). This weeks theme is Tranquil. I like to think of myself as quite a chilled out person (most of the time) and central to my tranquility is going diving. It’s been too long and I miss it. There isn’t anything to compare. It is at once both exhilarating and calming. Mantas, (after you get over how massive they are), are incredibly graceful which is why I’ve chosen to feature one in this weeks post.
I hope your weekend is full of tranquility and rainbows 🙂

By the way, thanks for all who voted my last photofriday (large) into the Noteworthy archive 🙂
