My image in Bird Photographer of the Year 2017

I am really chuffed to bits to find out I am a finalist in this years Bird Photographer of the Year 2017 - in the Creative Imagery category. This is my image - it's based on a photograph I took of a female mallard stretching out her wing, taken on a pond in the sunset. It was about 7pm and water glistened a gentle gold all over the pond. The ducks were swimming about quietly before bedding down for the night. When I turned this image into a kaleidoscope, I loved the way the water ended up as an abstract pattern and reminded me a bit of a William Morris material design. I have to thank my friend Nigel West from my local camera club for inspiring me to make kaleidoscopes in the first place!

Is it all in the eyes?

Is it all in the eyes? Eyes are something I seem to photograph a lot - I hadn't' realised until today when looking back randomly through my thousands of photos it suddenly occurred to me. In each of these images, the eye is central to the image and the main reason for the photograph. I like to imagine what the cat, horse, pony, fox, lion, leopard and elephant see.
