It is a great pleasure to let you know that my image of a Black Grouse in backlight reached 3rd Place (PSA Bronze) in Global Arctic Awards 2015. I also achieved a Highly Commended Award (PSA Ribbon) for my picture of a female Black Grouse.
Both images are taken not far from where I live in Norway during the lekking season in spring 2015.
Totally 4,000 images were entered in this year’s competition.
