The best land­scape images of 2016

Now in its third year, The In­ter­na­tional Land­scape Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year Award cel­e­brates the very best in land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy, with en­trants re­quired to sub­mit a port­fo­lio of at least four images. Here’s a se­lec­tion of our favourite shots taken on a Nikon

Win­ner, In­ter­na­tional Land­scape Pho­to­graph of the Year Rua­cana Falls, Namibia Hougaard Malan, South Africa Nikon D810, 70-200mm f/4, 3 secs, f/8, ISO100

N-Photo says: It’s the dra­matic light­ing in this im­age that makes it so strik­ing, and so orig­i­nal. Wa­ter­falls are usu­ally shot in shade, but by shoot­ing into the light, Hougaard has man­aged to ren­der the drama and power of the falls as some­thing serene and other-worldly. Tech­ni­cally, he’s nailed what must have been a tricky ex­po­sure, and the three­sec­ond shut­ter speed pro­vides just the right amount of blur in the tum­bling ten­drils of wa­ter.
