On a Rising Tide, by WDC’s very own field officer, Charlie Phillips has been named the Scottish nature photography book of 2016.

It features almost 100 images alongside Charlie’s accounts and recollections of recording the bottlenose dolphins that live in the Moray Frith, Scotland over many years.

The biennial Scottish Nature Photography Awards celebrate nature, wildlife and landscape photography and Charlie, a former Scottish Nature Photographer of the Year winner, was thrilled to pick up the award.
