Britain’s Take a view: Landscape Photographer of the Year 2015 showcases some extraordinary, picturesque and personal photographs, from beautifully framed macro shots to photos that reveal Britain at its best, from coast to mountains.
Andy Farrer from Dorset took out the top prize of £10,000 with this photograph of Bat’s Head on the Dorset coast.
Charlie Waite, one of Britain’s leading landscape photographers and founder of the Awards said:
“Andy’s winning photograph of this beautiful area of Dorset’s Jurassic Coast is a gentle image with a simple, effective composition that reflects the mood of a cold, winter’s morning. It is believable and appealing, with the snow adding an interesting dimension to a classic scene.”
The Young Landscape Photographer of the Year went to Mairi Ayres for her exquisite capturing of a daisy viewed through a tiny water droplet.
The Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards are held in association with VisitBritain and the Countryside is GREAT campaign.
You can see all the winning entries in an exhibition on the Balcony at London’s Waterloo Station from 23 November 2015 until 7 February 2016 and on Motion@Waterloo, a 40 metre wide LCD screen that spans station platforms 7 to 11, on the opening evening. (free admission).
