Eilean Dubh book wins Scottish Award
- Published 5th October 2012
Society member Russell Turner LRPS has produced a book of photographs Eilean Dubh - The Black Isle which include his work and that of two friends, Andrew Dowsett and James Moore. The book has won the Scottish Nature Photography Awards Favourite Scottish Nature Photography Book 2012. It was voted for by the public from a short-list of eight titles.
The three authors commented: "When we first put together Eilean Dubh, the book was just for us - we never dreamed that we'd created the Favourite Scottish Nature Photography Book for 2012! That we did so is thanks to all the readers who voted for it. We appreciate every single vote.
Eilean Dubh's success is particularly gratifying because the shortlist included such great books, some by big names in nature photography. We were delighted that a self-published work was even considered; to win is incredible, but maybe not so surprising when you consider the beauty and variety of the Black Isle. This is a place which definitely deserves to be better known."
