Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition

If you love world class wildlife photography you’ll love this. The winners of Veolia Environnement Wildlife Photographer of the Year were announced last night and the exhibition begins in at the Natural History Museum in London tomorrow.

Overall winner was Daniel Beltra for Still Life in Oil, a clever play on words and a photograph that is beautiful, thought provoking and tragic.

My congratulations also go to Andy Rouse for gaining a Highly Commended in the Behaviour: Mammals class. I met Andy in the Falklands years ago. He’s a superb photographer who is always placed in the competition and is surely a future winner. Some of you will remember the photo he took  of me on the beach with gentoo penguins (below).

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition can also be seen in regional venues. Nature in Art Museum in Gloucester will be hosting the exhibition early next year: 16 January 2012 to 17 March 2012. Don’t miss it.
