In pictures: Scottish Nature Photography Awards

CHARLES Everitt from Edinburgh won first prize in the Scottish Nature Photography Awards’ environmental category with this image of a stag with a zany hairstyle, actually discarded plastic and canes, entitled In A Tangle.

Judge Lorne Gill said: “There are quite a lot of things that need to come together in nature photography if a photographer is to capture the perfect photograph. Light, composition, colour, mood, subject behaviour, the decisive moment to name but a few.

“In this photograph of a young bottlenose dolphin breaking the surface of a totally becalmed ocean, we witness one of these moments that happen only very rarely. I’m sure Charlie Phillips’ heart must have missed a beat when he reviewed this shot on his computer screen for the first time. I know mine did and I’m sure yours will too.”
