Delighted and honoured to win the Portfolio award for ‘Natural World’ in the Travel Photographer of the Year last week.
The portfolio of four pictures is taken from my ongoing personal project ‘The Lake’ – you can see a wider selection from the project on the website: craigeaston.com > travel and landscape series > The Lake.
What the judges said: “Craig’s images caught the eye of the judges in the earlier online rounds of the judging but it was only when they saw the sumptuous tones and detail in the prints that their true beauty and quality was fully appreciated.”
The prints will be exhibited as part of the TPOTY exhibitions to be held in 2017:
Hull, City of Culture, 18th May – 30th June
Greenwich, London, 4th August – 3rd September

It’s that time of year again when the starlings gather around the UK in enormous flocks called ‘murmurations’ – whilst it is still an incredible sight the RSPB tells us not to be fooled by the big flocks:
“Despite the incredible size of the flocks, these numbers are just a fraction of what they used to be. Huge starling flocks used to gather over Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Belfast, but you have a much better chance of seeing the birds in rural areas.”
“The starling population has crashed by over 70% in recent years, meaning they are now on the critical list of UK birds most at risk.”
“The decline is believed to be due to the loss of permanent pasture, increased use of farm chemicals and a shortage of food and nesting sites in many parts of the UK.”
Here’s a small show….

I’m not sure what’s going on, but I’ve found myself photographing dogs of late. No real plan and no real direction to it, I just seem to be seeing dog pictures everywhere: Paris, Liverpool, New York, Mumbai, Amsterdam…..

A few images of the new collection of prints I’ve made for the gorgeous Lime Wood boutique country house hotel in Lyndhurst. Set in the heart of the New Forest National Park, the hotel asked me to create an portfolio of large format prints of trees and woodland. Just an hour and a half drive out of London if you fancy a weekend away… www.limewoodhotel.co.uk
