An exhibition featuring the winning images from the 2015 Scottish Nature Photographer of the Year competition is on show at Logan Botanic Garden until the end of the month.
The annual Scottish Nature Photography Awards attract entries from professional and amateur photographers from around the world and cover wildlife, landscape, environmental, botanical and abstract subjects photographed in Scotland, as well as junior and student categories.
As well as the winners of the photography competition, the exhibition also features the winners from the inaugural Scottish Nature Video Award 2016 for short nature films. Zoology students Hannah Pollock and Jamie Unwin won the Award for their video Walking with Red Deer about the search for Red Deer on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula.
There was also success for Dumfries and Galloway filmmakers Andrew Macdonald and Roger Lever who won second and third place respectively: Andrew for Logpile Larder, a short account of the antics of one day’s visitors to a logpile, including some of Scotland’s rarest mammals and Roger for The Flight of the Gannet, depicting the crisscrossing flight of the Gannets over Bass Rock.
Gordon Rae, of Lockerbie, also won the Scottish Wildlife Portrait category.
The exhibition is open in The Studio, Logan Botanic Garden 10am – 5pm daily. Garden admission applies. Details at www.scottishnaturephotographyawards.com
