March continues to be an encouraging month. As well as the two magazine features, Getty images have been in touch and want to take a selection of my work for their picture library (which is nice).
I've included a few images, below, that are part of the selection. The first is a juvenile wheatear calling to it's parent. I shot this in 2010 up in the Scottish Highlands, whilst on a week long adventure with my good friend Phil Morgan. The location was right up in the north west of Scotland, just south of Cape Wrath. The area was full of newly fledged wheatears, being fed by their parents. The birds didn't seem to mind the fact that I was milling about. I shot hundreds of frames, this one was the pick of the bunch.
The divi divi, or watapana, tree is Aruba's trademark. Now I usually shy away from photographing the obvious but I had to document this unique specimen. The tree is situated on the beach with its foliage pointing out towards the ocean. In Aruba the watapana trunk is usually bent at a 90 degree angle, due to the northeasterly winds that blow across the island.
