Outdoor Photographer of the Year 2014 – Commended Wildlife Category

It is definitely competition season at the moment in photographic circles with many Landscape, Nature and Wildlife competitions either opening for 2015 or announcing their winners for 2014. I was very pleased to learn yesterday that one of my photographs has been commended in the 2014 Outdoor Photographer of the Year competition in the Wildlife Insight Category. I was fortunate to win this competition in 2013 in the Spirit of Adventure Category for a photograph of mountain climbers near the summit in an approaching storm and it is a great thrill to have my work recognised again this year with a commendation for the Wildlife Insight Category. The photograph I chose to enter was of an Arctic Fox stalking a gull from behind a snow drift. I took this photograph early last year in winter in the extreme north east of Iceland in a place only accessible by boat. This particular image was taken with the Canon EOS1DX and Canon 600mm F4L IS MKII.Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 8.52.59 amFox Attack

  1. Well done Josh! This and your other image of the fox, which I think is even better, are superb. What a great way to start the new year 🙂

    When are you heading back to colder climbs mate?

    1. Thanks Andy!I happen to agree with you and prefer the other Arctic Fox image more.. its more evocative I think. Off to Yellowstone in Winter in a couple of weeks. Thanks for the support! Cheers.

  2. I enjoy seeing the remote places you visit, and then capture, completely uninterrupted by your presence. You pull me in as though I was there, brought into a storybook along with the wild adventures and exotic characters you portray.

  3. I love wildlife, and your capture of this steely eyed but focused fox with abated mouth and teeth prepared for a kill, tell a great story.
    This is what I love about your photos, the story.
    Great photo.
