In 2020, aside from a possible flirtation with Covid 19 which has left me socially wary and certainly pleasantry weary, I’ve somehow been a finallist in Emulsive’s FP4Party, shortlisted in Landscape Photographer of the Year and had an image chosen to be BBC Wildlife Magazine’s Pic of the Day on social media.
