Stunning shots of Scotland have been announced as winners in this year’s Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards.

Graham Mackay’s incredible photograph of the Wallace Monument, near Stirling, earned him top place in the Historic Britain category, while George Robertson’s picture of a Glasgow mural scooped top spot in the Urban Life category.

A number of other images in the gallery above made the list of finalists in a range of categories.

The competition received tens of thousands of entries celebrating the richly diverse landscape of the UK.

From dramatic storms and raging seas to the quieter joys of misty woodlands and close-ups of nature’s fascinating details, the winning photographs show off the talent of their creators and inspire visitors to get out there and explore.

The overall winning image

A shot of Woolland Woods in Dorset on a perfect spring day earned Chris Frost the overall title of Landscape Photographer of the Year, and the £10,000 top prize.

Chris described his photograph: “Taken in spring of 2018 in a wooded area close to Milborne St. Andrew in Dorset, this was the third visit to the area in a matter of days.

“On the previous days, both devoid of morning mists, the light had been harsh and unappealing but the third day delivered stunning conditions with mist swirling through the trees. The low shooting position allowed more emphasis to be placed on the wild garlic and pathway.”

Counting Sheep

The Young Landscape Photographer of the Year title is awarded to Joshua Elphick for his image ‘Counting Sheep’.

He said: “I captured this photo on the South Downs in East Sussex whilst out on a walk with my sister. We spotted this sheep standing well away from its herd. As I slowly approached the fence – trying my best not to scare it – I knelt down beside it and took the photo.

“Although some may think this image may have looked better and cooler if it were something like a Deer stood in its place, I personally like that it is a sheep because I think many believe that there is not much point taking a photo of a sheep because we see them all the time.

“I personally think that the image shows to appreciate the landscape around us and not take everything we have for granted.”
