amazing surprise to win this category of the Scottish Nature Photography
Awards. I was already chuffed to be shortlisted - but winning the category
"My 2016 radius of photography in Scotland was a bit restricted compared
to previous years. I usually spend at least a couple of weeks in the Highlands,
mainly leading photography tours for amateurs. Last year I had a break and
spent some time exploring my adopted home town instead. While less impressive
than the Highlands, Glasgow is full of attractive spaces.
While a frequent explorer of Glasgows green spaces, I distinctly remember
the day this photo was taken. We went for an evening walk along the canal
towards Firhill venturing further than during previous walks. I was totally
stunned when we turned the corner and this sight came up. The perfect light
and those amazing reflections! I was literally jumping up and down in joy.
My partner was giving me some funny looks indeed! I am very happy that the
judges decided to make this image the category winner."
