A striking shot of shards of ice on a bitterly cold morning in Glencoe has scooped the top prize in this year’s Landscape Photographer of the Year Award.
Pete Rowbottom, from Wigan, Lancashire, beat thousands of entries to win the £10,000 top prize in the 12th year of the competition for his “emotionally strong” image of icy water in front of the mountain Buachaille Etive Mor.
He took the winning shot in the Scottish Highlands on a freezing morning in February.
Awards founder and landscape photographer Charlie Waite said: “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.”
