Lerwick - Billy Arthur "I’ve always been fascinated by sea urchins and how delicate they are, it’s always satisfying to find a completely intact shell when beach combing. They’re abundant in the waters around Shetland and these two were sitting proud on a section of rocky reef - the natural twilight lit surface really made them stand out."

These beautiful winning images now feature in a celebratory calendar marking Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters. With over 700 entries, Scotland’s nature agency was overwhelmingly impressed with the quality and selection of photographs.

Francesca Osowska, NatureScot Chief Executive said “We were struck by the range of subjects captured – from underwater wildlife encounters to journeys through scenic waterscapes, spanning the length and breadth of Scotland, including our island treasures.”
