Stuart Russell said about the photograph taken at Birnie and Gaddon Loch: “I am inspired by Scotland’s natural beauty, I think my photograph shows humour and stimulates conversation. Everyone who has viewed this image tells me it makes him or her smile and I think that is the best compliment to receive. It is light hearted and comedic. This is a photograph, which inspires exploration and an appreciation for British wildlife. It makes people stop and smile. A huge thank you to the people who voted, it really means a lot to me to come fourth in a nationwide competition.”
