Landscape Photographer of the Year 2017 Overall Winner

Diminutive Dune, Sand forms at low tide, West Wittering, West Sussex, England. Mr Graham said: ‘As well as its minimal simplicity, I particularly like the indeterminate scale of the image. The double S-curve could be two metres long or two thousand… It was actually about twenty’

Stunning winners from Landscape Photographer of the Year showcase Britain at its most beautiful

The Northern Lights, bright red poppies and a Welsh viaduct are just three of the subjects from this year’s Landscape Photographer of the Year competition.

Photos were taken all over the country, from the heights of Scotland to the depths of the Channel Islands.

The winners of each category have since been announced.

Benjamin Graham’s image of the West Wittering coastline in West Sussex won best overall, out of thousands of entrants.

Andrew Bulloch won best overall for the youth competition with his image of a skatepark illuminated by the Northern lights.
