7th April 2021
Thank you for your entry into the 2021 Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year competition.
The competition received 2,206 photographs entered by 403 photographers from 17 countries this year. Our judges Narelle Autio, Trent Parke and Stavros Pippos undertook the challenging task of determining a shortlist of finalists. They commented on how difficult it was to select so few images from such a large number of outstanding photographs. However they also remarked on how much they enjoyed seeing all of the entries. All images were judged without the photographer’s name being revealed.
Unfortunately you were unsuccessful in making the shortlist on this occasion.
The Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year exhibition will be open to the public from Friday 27 August at the South Australian Museum in Adelaide. Details of prizewinners will be announced on the South Australian Museum and Nature Photographer of the Year websites on 27 August and published in the September-October 2021 edition of Australian Geographic.
The South Australian Museum sincerely thanks you for your interest and involvement in the Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year competition for 2021, and hope that you will enter again in future.
Yours sincerely …….
Here let me show what you won’t be seeing on the walls of the gallery if you do happen to visit the exhibition at the South Australian Museum in Adelaide from August 27th 2021

If at first you don’t succeed try try again….. then take up Origami instead.
A trip to Adelaide Zoo with a Nikon Z6ii camera.
You can’t beat Black and White
After a few cloudy evenings I am happy to report that last night was a clear sky all night
A Waning Gibbous moon rose at around 7.30pm
For some reason the camera stopped capturing images at 5.54 am
But anyhow watch out for the Shooting star towards the end of the clip and to the left of the moon.
Cue. Bad Company song..
All Sky Camera software running off Raspberry PI 3B with HQ Camera and a cheap 360 degree fisheye lens from Amazon.
I have refocused the lens and removed the cheap plastic dome that was protecting the lens because every single scratch was ruining the final images.
