It’s like waiting for buses to come along. Just at the point where I barely produce a mono photograph, in January I featured in Black+White Photography Magazine for the first time and lightning has struck again with the May edition…

This time, the magazine has picked up on some of the wonderful black & white entries from Outdoor Photographer Of The Year, and although I had a number of photographs shortlisted in the competition, they didn’t get any further so it was an immense surprise to see Black+White Photography Magazine picked up one of those to feature.

It is in truth one of my favourite images of the last couple of years – Emerging From Winter sits framed over my desk at home as a constant source of inspiration. It was taken on a perfect morning in The Cotswolds during March 2014 so I’m particularly pleased that this photograph got picked up to share with a wider audience.

Once again, it’s a very nice feature from B+W Photography and I share the pages with some wonderful images from Peter North (top left), Lee Acaster (Bottom Left) and Josiah Launstein’s wonderful battling rams – he won the Youth section of the competition and is only age 10 so looks like he has huge potential to me.

I have a couple of large features coming up, one of which will be appearing in Outdoor Photography’s June edition on my woodland wanderings which hopefully some of you reading this will enjoy. A couple of people I know spotted that Outdoor Photography ran a full page lead for this, using a slightly surreptitious cropped version of my image Emerald Gorge which is currently featuring at the Patchings Connected 2015 exhibition as one of the printed images on show. More to come on the whole arts festival soon…
