From the wildlife photographer of the year awards, 2014. Herfried Marek, Austria: Golden birch. I was browsing the book in Waterstones today, and came across this, and was struck. It is brilliant. Shades of Rice terraces in Yunnan in the way that what’s actually a photograph looks like a painting. I think it is far better than the winner; the judges wimped out and went for a boring picture of lions.

My number two is some fish and an anenome:

As you can tell, I like patterns. Number three I think I’d give to the sand dune.

    I assume ‘weasel riding woodpecker’ has a lock on the award for 2015.
