Highly Commended image -2015 BWPA awards

Submerged forest with tree stump - Borth/Ynyslas

Submerged forest with tree stump – Borth/Ynyslas

I think it is now safe to announce that one of my images has been Highly Commended in the Coastal and Marine section of the 2015 BWPA competition. It will thus be appearing in the exhibition and book.

One might query whether this constitutes wildlife at all;  the trees have been dead for about 5,000 years! But it is still a fantastically wild place in the right conditions, even if the sand has long ago returned and the tree stumps been hidden again.
