I’m delighted to announce that I have won the Amazing Places Portfolio Category of the Travel Photographer of the Year 2010. This prestigious international competition, which attracts thousands of applicants, involves submitting images online then if shortlisted sending fine art prints for final judging. The Portfolio category is based on a series of four images.

STORY BEHIND THE PORTFOLIO

These images were taken during Anglo-Scottish East Greenland expedition in 2006 which was a month long ski journey involving pulling sleds, undertaken with three friends with the aim of climbing new peaks in an unexplored area of East Greenland. The expedition succeeded in 16 first ascents but the real discovery for me was the otherworldly light of the Arctic cased by the midnight sun and the interplay of the palette of pastel colours with the almost-not-there landscape.

Much of the month was either bright blue skies or white clouds – of little photographic interest – but the images in the portfolio were of the sudden moments of drama that punctuated these conditions. For example, the primarily grey photograph, depicting the horizon of light  was taken when we were tent bound for three days on the icecap and the light appeared momentarily just before the storm closed in again.

Bagang is a traditional fishing structure for catching anchovy made of bamboo in Sabah, Borneo. A large fishing net is placed on the sea bottom and light is used to attract the fishes gathering above the net. When this looks promising the net is lifted to collect all the fishes trapped inside. The structure is very beautiful, floating on the sea like a sketch of a house, which I imagine holds the dreams of those who build them.

Pulau Selingan (is one of three island located 40 kilometers north of Sandakan in Sabah, east Malaysia. During the peak season (October) up to 50 turtles come ashore to lay eggs. Marine turtles have been around for 230 million years at least, but due to human activities they have been brought, over the past hundred years, to the brink of extinction.
