An idyllic image of a young boy bounding over rocks in South Devon was the top picture chosen for the National Trust’s 2019 handbook.

The photo, by Ed Silvester, won a National Trust photographic competition which saw dozens of stunning images showcase Britain’s beauty.

Ed’s picture, taken on a family Easter break, was taken at Prawle Point and features his son Adam, 10.

His photo will star on the cover of the 2019 National Trust handbook and be seen by the charity’s five million members.

An atmospheric picture of a misty Corfe Castle in Dorset, taken by Brian Terrey, will be used on the charity’s member cards, beating thousands of other entries.

The winning images needed to show a connection to nature, reflecting the work that the conservation charity does to care for special outdoor places.

There were more than 7,500 photos entered into the competition, which was sponsored by Panasonic LUMIX [2]. Submissions ranged from mist-cloaked valleys in the Peak District, to carpets of heather on the Cornish cliffs.
