Naturally Orkney named as the favorite Scottish Nature Photography Book

A book dealing with the wild species of Orkney has been brought up as Scotlands Favorite Scottish Nature Photography Book of 2014. The book – Naturally Orkney – is the work of Raymond Besant, a wildlife photographer and cameraman. It was published by The Orcadian previous year.

The vote via the internet is arranged every 2 years by Scottish Nature Photography Awards that celebrate wildlife, nature as well as landscape photography in that country. A leading website reported that Raymond Besant told that he is more than happy that Naturally Orkney has won this honor.  He loved working on the snaps, trying out all new techniques, observing animal behaviour, and also bringing Orkneys wildlife to a wider audience so they could relish this too.

Winter in Glen Lyon, a book by Jamie Grant (which is published by Aberfeldy Watermill) took the 2nd position in the vote, and Otters: Return to the River, a book by Anna Levin and Laurie Campbell (published by Birlinn), took the third position.

Meanwhile, 100 magnificent photos are showcased at 50th Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibit starting this week at Houston Museum of Natural Science. Launched in the year 1965, the competition attracted around 42000 images from 96 countries.

Christian Vizi, who took the photo of water plants and small fishes, told that he has always been fascinated by the uniqueness and beauty of Mexican cenotes. One of his personal projects as photographer is to publish a book on these magnificent natural treasures.
