More than 7,000 pho­to­graphs, from stormy seas near the coast at Bo­tal­lack in Corn­wall to sun­rise over Sugar Loaf in the Bre­con Bea­cons, were en­tered for the 2018 Na­tional Trust Hand­book Pho­tog­ra­phy Com­pe­ti­tion. This year the theme was for im­ages which showed a real love for – and con­nec­tion with – nature. Cho­sen by a panel of five judges, in­clud­ing broad­caster and nat­u­ral­ist David Lindo and pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­pher An­drew But­ler, the win­ners have now been an­nounced.

He ex­plains:“you need luck with land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy. Some of my top im­ages are lucky shots and this is the best of them. I love it so much that it hangs on my liv­ing room wall.”

“I try and camp as of­ten as I can so that I can cap­ture land­scapes dur­ing the golden hour in the early morn­ings and 4am I forced my­self out of my sleep­ing bag and walked around the edge of the lakeêinêtheê­dark­ê­toêþndêaê­goodê­com­po­si­tion.êiês­tum­bledê upon this lone tree and boul­der purely by chance, whilst an­kle deep in wet boggy ground.
