All the photographs were taken on BBOWT’s nature reserves, and show the beauty of wildlife in close-up as well as the tranquillity of landscapes.
People could submit their images to five categories.
Alan Garnsworthy’s photo of a Meadow grasshopper on heather at Crookham Common in Berkshire won the Flora, Fauna and Landscapes category. The image was also judged to be the overall winner of the competition.
“Every August I go to Crookham or Snelsmore, this is a great time to visit as the heather is looking its best and always makes your photos stand out a bit more,” says Alan from Thatcham, Berkshire.
“Photography is just a hobby at the moment but I'm trying to get into it more seriously, so this a big boost and encourages me to keep going.”
As overall winner Alan won a Panasonic DSLR camera, a printed canvas of his winning photo, a certificate, and a photography workshop with award-winning wildlife photographer Elliott Neep.
“I can't wait to get started on the workshop with Elliott, this is just what I need to take my photography further.”
