Landscape winners celebrated
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.takeaview.co.uk.
