Castle landscape at sunrise named among the year’s best historic photographs
The annual Historic Photographer of the Year competition is not solely restricted to British subjects, yet it counts Historic England among its official partners, so tends to have a strong showing from these shores. This year’s overall winner was Steve Liddiard for a dramatic shot of Whiteford Point Lighthouse in south Wales, yet we particularly loved Scott Antcliffe’s stunning capture of Bamburgh Castle at sunrise which was shortlisted in the “Where History Happened” category.
The judging panel included broadcaster and historian Dan Snow. “It was once again a pleasure and a privilege to be able to sift through the outstanding images from this year’s entrants,” he said. “It was perhaps all the more poignant and redolent for the fact that there has been so much restriction, constraint and hardship for so many over the past couple of years.”
