Overall Winner of the Scottish Nature Photography Awards – Ruth Grindrod 2019
I am delighted to have been awarded overall winner of the Scottish Nature Photography Awards as well as winner of the Sea and Coast category with my photograph Three Rocks.
Three Rocks was taken on an extremely windy day at the Butt of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. Rather than shoot the lighthouse, I chose the formation of this trio of rocks from a slightly elevated position to capture their shape and form as well as the churning seas. The conditions were tough but persistence paid off with this final capture.
To mark the 10th anniversary of the Awards, the winner of the inaugural 2010 title, wildlife photographer Ron McCombe, joined photographer and writer Jamie Grant and photographer and organiser Niall Irvine on the judging panel.
Niall said: “Ruth’s image has beautifully captured the drama and power of the sea. The light, composition and depth of detail in the image is remarkable, particularly the movement caught in the water. I’m delighted that Three Rocks is our overall winner.”
