This superb collection of imagery showcases the very best of the British Wildlife Photography Awards, an annual competition celebrating the breathtaking diversity of the natural history of the British Isles. The photographs within the book demonstrate an extraordinary range of viewpoints and differing approaches. Every picture is accompanied by the photographer's personal account of the inspiration behind the image: wonderfully varied, amusing and illuminating stories that help bring us closer to the fascinating and often unseen world of nature. Also included are the photographer's notes, outlining their technique and the type of equipment used, making this an invaluable resource for anyone interested in improving their photography or investing in new equipment.
"This beautifully produced third annual collection of superb images of British wildlife contains plenty of birds – including the year's overall winner, a technically difficult striking underwater image of diving Gannets – yet covers the full spectrum of British wildlife, from mammals and insects to woodland scenes and under-sea life. My personal favourites are the Mountain Hare, the Emerald Damselflies, the Wolf-fish and, perhaps surprisingly amongst the many birds, the striking Mute Swan image. All of the featured photographs are the winners and chosen entries to the annual competition, and each photograph is accompanied by a descriptive caption, plus the equipment used and exposure information are detailed in an appendix – plenty of tips here on how to try to match the quality of these images."
