Landscape Photographer of the Year 2009
Living the View. Highly Commended
Take a View, The Landscape Photographer of the Year awards have become one of Britain’s most prestigious photography competitions attracting thousands of entries every year. There is no other landscape photography competition quite like it the UK and the standards are very high indeed.
The winning entries and a superb collection of the finest landscapes chosen by the judges are shown in an exhibition at the National Theatre from 5th December to 24th January and are also published in a beautiful glossy volume that has become an essential addition to the bookshelf of many landscape photographers since the awards began.
Last year I had three shortlisted and one, Tandlewood, won the Second Prize in the “Classic View” section.
This year I had four shortlisted and the picture taken on St. Abbs Head above was Highly Commended in the “Living the View” section and the picture of Lindisfarne Causeway below was also Commended.Both of these entries will of course be shown in this years exhibition and appear in the book too.
These two pictures and the two other shortlisted entries of Lindisfarne Castle were all taken within 24 hours of each other on a trip to the North East in March. If you would like to find out more about these images and others taken during the same outing follow the picture links or start here and follow the clock links on the pages for the whole story.
