Winners Day! London WWT with Chris Packham - 24th January 2011
A great start to the new year with my Shoveler image below being selected by the WWT as the Regional Winner in the main category of the 2010 competition. The image was taken at Barnes in March 2010.
This was a terrific day with other category winners at the London Wetland Centre. During the morning in the theatre Chris Packham presented a very honest critique of every shortlisted image. This was followed by presentations, lunch and a couple of hours on the reserve with an assignment to capture images of conflict, harmony and 'something new'. Despite a typical grey winters day, it was good to get outside. One attendee aptly described the scene as looking like a pack of zombies stalking the area with cameras poised in every direction.
