Best of Landscape Photographer of the Year Contest

The winners of landscape photography contest announced in London

The Landscape Photographer of the Year contest was founded in 2007 by a famous British photographer, Charlie Waite. The first prize and £10,000 went to Cambrian-based photographer Mark Littlejohn.

He captured a transient stream that appeared after a heavy rain in Glencoe’s mountains on the South-West of Scotland. “Mark discovered and isolated a fleeting moment of beauty within a vast and slightly threatening arena. The composition compels us to visually explore the image and its delicacy and understatement are enormously satisfying,” commented Waite.
