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."
