Landscape Photographer of the Year awards 2014

10th November 2014
I’m proud to tell everyone that for the 3rd year in a row I have been commended in the UK Landscape Photographer of the Year awards. My image has won a place in the Awards book and will be part of the London Waterloo exhibition.

This is just about the toughest competition there is in Landscape photography, with tens of thousands of images entered of the highest standard by top amateurs and professionals alike; only 50 images or so making it in the Classic view category (the main category and the one that I enter).

My commended image, title and words as they will appear in the awards book and exhibition in London...

Frosty fells sunrise

First light on a frosty Skelgill bank with its dark path and worn in footprints working their way down the hillside to the freezing fog below, hidden in the fog is Derwent water and the town of Keswick, overshadowed by Skiddaw massif in the distance.

On this morning, I was heading to the South part of the Lake District but decided on a hunch that there might be some elusive mist in and around the Keswick area further north, something that I have been trying to capture for more than four years.
