The Prince of Wale's Commonwealth Environmental Photography Awards - Out of the Blue

Overall Competition and Nature's Assets Winner | "Breath of Fresh Air" by Ashley Wee

"While snorkeling just off the north coast of Nassau, Bahamas, I came upon a group of sea turtles — about 6 or 7 of them. As we drifted within a few feet of them, these turtles were not disturbed by human presence as they maintained a quiet and natural demeanor. One in particular caught my attention, as it was bobbing at the surface. It made me think about this animal and how it was affected by things both above and below the ocean.

Nature will always continue to impress us with its beauty and it is something we must not take for granted. As humans, we need to learn to appreciate this beauty without disturbing it in order to ensure preservation for future generations."

Ashley has just returned from Malta where she had a Royal appointment with the Prince of Wales and was recognized as the winner of the Prince of Wales Environmental Commonwealth Photography competition. Her photo, “A Breath of Fresh Air”,  is truly stunning and worthy of this global recognition.

The team at Spruce Meadows congratulates you Ashley!
