Wildlife pho­tog­ra­phy spe­cial

Cotswold Life - - CONTENTS -

Last year we ran a pho­tog­ra­phy com­pe­ti­tion in as­so­ci­a­tion with Glouces­ter­shire Wildlife Trust cel­e­brat­ing the di­verse nat­u­ral world in this beau­ti­ful area. Im­ages were then se­lected from the win­ners and run­ner­sup to ap­pear in our 2017 cal­en­dar.

The over­all win­ner Ian Boyd, with his won­der­ful hares pho­to­graph, not only won the hon­our of ap­pear­ing on the cover of the cal­en­dar, but also a week­end stay at Eck­ing­ton Manor and a per­son­alised work­shop with top wildlife pho­tog­ra­pher, Iain Green of Wild Won­der Pho­tog­ra­phy.

The im­ages you see here are the re­sult of Ian’s stay at the manor, and his in­dis­putable tal­ent for cap­tur­ing the flora and fauna that share the grounds with guests.

I took this bur­dock this­tle in a sunny glade against shad­ows be­hind. This­tles may be a trou­ble­some weed in most sit­u­a­tions but they are great for in­sects.
