Amateur Photographer - - Contents -

THE WIN­NERS of this year’s Land­scape Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year have also been an­nounced. The over­all win­ner is Pete Row­bot­tom, who shot a com­pe­ti­tion reg­u­lar, Glen­coe (pic­tured). ‘ The nu­mer­ous strong di­ag­o­nal lines of the ice frac­tures in Pete’s im­age echo the shape of Buachaille Etive Mor in the back­ground and have peaks of their own,’ said com­pe­ti­tion founder Char­lie Waite. ‘ This is an im­age where you can hear and feel the land­scape as well as see it, so it is emo­tion­ally strong and in­volves the viewer on mul­ti­ple lev­els.’

A new book, Land­scape Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year Col­lec­tion 12, is now on sale; it fea­tures all the win­ning images from 2018. For full de­tails of this year’s con­test, see www.takeav­
