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.”
