AWARD: Winner Guardian Travel Photographer of the month


I am delighted to have again won the monthly Guardian Readers Travel Photography Competition for July 2017 with British Summer Evening. I have now doubled my prospect of winning a trip to Costa Rica at the year-end judging!

The judge, Paul Goldstein said...

"This is almost perfectly composed. The drama of the spray, the three lonely lights behind, the electric blue car on the right. Superb and not arrived at by accident. I would have cropped out the brake lights on the car on the right – I have to find fault somewhere. Winner by a mile. Brilliant work."

I like Paul a lot!

This dramatic opportunity at Sandsend in North Yorkshire was created by combination of high tide and winds created. It took some patience to get this image and I was soaked in the process by a wave hitting me from behind!
