Weather Photographer of the Year 2017

I mentioned a little while ago that I’d been shortlisted in the Weather Photographer of the year competition.

The organisers, the Royal Meteorological Society and the Royal Photographic Society received over 2000 entries from 60 countries for this year’s competition.

Quite bizarrely, whilst not taking the overall title, I came in first place.  This is a link to the results – https://www.rmets.org/weather-photographer-year-2017-winners-announced

I wish I’d been able to attend the awards ceremony in London last night, that would have been my first.  I’d have been worrying about just how happy I could look for the winners, certainly not expecting I’d have been one of them.  However, I’m honestly very happy to be here in Fuerteventura, exploring a whole new angle to my photography.  I’ve another post to follow about ruined and decaying buildings very soon.

I got a Google alert on the beach today (great to have 4G  while lying in the sun) to say that I’d appeared on the BBC News website.  Certainly not something I thought would ever happen.

Here’s the picture, once again, that got me first place..
