The results of the Scottish Landscape Photographer Of The Year 2017 were announced today (6 March 2018). Congratulations to the overall winner Paul Webster.
I didn't repeat last year's success of winning a category, however I was delighted to be Commended in the Scottish Weather category for this image of Saltcoats, entitled "End of the Season".
Sometimes the best photo opportunities come from the worst weather conditions - especially in Scotland. "End of the Season" was shot on a wet and windy, autumn evening, when I'd almost given up due to the weather and the failing light. The glow lighting up the fence is from a train that had just passed to the right of the camera, but was out of shot.
