ePHOTOzine Member Wins OPOTY 2012 - ePHOTOzine member milouvision has won Outdoor Photographer Of The Year 2012.
ePHOTOzine member milouvision has been crowned the overall winner of Outdoor Photographer Of The Year 2012.
milouvision, whose real name is David Baker, won the competition with his beautiful image of the sea lapping onto a beach which he entered into the 'At The Water's Edge' category.
David took the shot in Southbourne. "I had in essence followed a storm from Southampton to Southbourne." he explains.
"Usually these break up across the Isle of Wight ensuring really interesting weather patterns from Southbourne. I arrived a little early and the impending stormy weather can be seen gathering on the extreme left. The good thing about Southbourne is that there are undulations at the shoreline in the sand between the sea groynes and these can produce absorbing sea trails. It was really a case of choosing one of these and ensuring a shutter speed of 0.6 to 2 seconds to produce a pleasing wave pattern."
Congratulations milouvision, this is a great achievement.
