Paul said: ""I was stunned to receive the phone call letting me
know I'd won the Land category at this year's awards. I'm very lucky in
that I get to be out and about exploring Scotland's landscapes on foot for
the Walkhighlands website, enabling me to share my passion for enjoying
the outdoors in our beautiful country with a large audience.
"This particular day
was forecast for blue skies and sunshine, so I'd headed up the Pap of Glencoe
and onto the start of the Aonach Eagach with a few shots in mind that I
wanted to capture. I never expected the dark clouds to roll in but the result
was some absolutely amazing light conditions that made everything look magical
and otherworldly. The Ravens circling around the ridge were just the icing
on the cake for a day I won't forget."
