National Geographic Traveller - Award Winner!

After attending last night's National Geographic Traveller 2017 awards last night I'm thrilled to announce I won my category, "Action" with my image of a firebreather -

My win will see my photo published in the forthcoming National Geographic Traveller magazine, due out in a few days, then apparently followed up by an appearance in the main magazine sometime in May.

A few photos from the ceremony, including the obligatory "stand in front of my own photo" shot.
