Runner Up - Scottish Nature Photography Awards 2016 - Sea and Coast Category

‘Scotland’s Alcatraz’, the Bass Rock

Karen’s image 'Scotland's Alcatraz’, Bass Rock is Runner-Up in the Sea & Coast Category of the Scottish Nature Photography Awards 2016.

Says Karen of the image, “The Bass Rock is such an iconic landmark in Scotland and when approximately 150,000 gannets descend each year, it truly does become a jaw-dropping place to be around. Having landed on the Rock twice and photographed it from the shore, this image was taken when sailing in a boat, giving a better sense of scale, the dark exposure subtly alluding to the Rock’s foreboding history.”
