Bearsden photographers impresses judges

Two amateur photographers have gained awards in a well known nature photography contest organized by Scottish Seabird Centre. The magnificent pictures clicked by Neil MacGregor as well as sixteen year old Catherine Sim were chosen from more than five hundred spectacular pictures.

Neil’s picture titled Osprey With Catch was the Scottish Wildlife category winner. And, his snap named Into The Deep won Creative Visions of Nature category. According to reports, Neil stated that it was really nice to get 1st spot in 2 of the most pop categories and a great follow up to his wins in the contest in 2011, where he secured victories in Public Choice and Landscape categories.

He added that this is the 3rd time he has entered Nature Photography Awards and for his pictures to have impressed both the judges as well as the voting public feels special thanks to all who voted. He could not wait to enjoy his prize – a special photography tour to Isle of May along with award winning photographer Lorne Gill.

Hopefully, he would return with some pictures to give for the awards next year. Catherine snatched the 2nd spot with her pictures Rainy Leaf in Juniors (i.e. 12 – 16) category. She, later, told that she was very pleased to be shortlisted for this contest and he was happy to get runner up award in his category as there were a whole lot of magnificent snaps she was up against. She would definitely be entering again next year.
