The Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild has just announced the Awards for Excellence for 2012 and I'm delighted to find that my photo book on the Cairngorms has been Highly Commended in the Outdoor book category. The judges said "this is stunning photography of a stunning region. The photographer's obvious feeling for the area is extremely well expressed through his pictures".
For those interested in my last post on cameras and photography the images in the book were taken over a number of years on Canon 300D, 350D and 450D cameras with Canon 18-55mm, Canon 55-250mm and Tamron 11-18mm lenses plus a Sigma DP1 camera. The photo of the cover was taken a few minutes ago with the Sony Nex 7 and Sigma 30mm lens, 3200 ISO, f2.8 @ 1/60.
