We love this wide-angle view of the Bolivian salt flats. On a basic level this photo more than satisfies the competition brief, but its spirit of adventure gives it a winning edge.
Travel is a great way to widen your experience of the world – and through the stunning aesthetics of this scene, Guy is inviting us to become part of the adventure too. The minimal composition and subtle colour palette are sublime. The use of reflection and careful positioning of the vehicles work perfectly.

The beautiful black-and-white shapes in this image give it a graphic look that almost makes it feel like an illustration. There’s a decidedly Escher-esque quality to the angles and the perspective, and it’s difficult to make visual sense of what’s going on, which adds to the intrigue. The harsh monochrome conversion, high contrast and graininess all add to the artistic quality of the image. No shooting information
Not your typical wide-angle scene, this vibrant image is packed with luscious detail that invites you into the location, searching for little vignettes of natural life hiding in the shadows. The tones have been handled well, with a good range of detail in both the highlights and shadows without appearing over-cooked. The composition is perfectly balanced, as the gentle arch of the tree’s branch curves across the top of the frame, and the water and light leads you into the distance.
