June held the AIPP South Australian Professional Photography awards. Over the last couple of years I haven’t been able to enter as I have been travelling over the winter months. 2016 I found myself in Adelaide for winter – I will blame my sister for keeping me here this year as she was pregnant and soon to give birth (being first time Aunty – I was pretty excited too)

A lot time, work and pulling hair out trying to pick images goes into the awards. This year I entered into Travel and Wildlife categories. I am very please that 4 of my images were award Silver.

It’s not easy getting the awards – some images do better than you expected and some just completely bomb out. I had 4 images 1 point shy of award standard so it can be a little frustrating too.

The images are from the Galapagos Islands, Bali and Vietnam.
