The winners of the Landscape Photographer of the Year were just announced and they include some spectacular images of UK landscapes. The winner of the overall title and the recipient of the £10,000 grand prize was Tony Bennett of Derbyshire who shot the "magical minutes of an autumn dawn." His photo was chosen from thousands of entries to nab the top spot.
Here are some of the other winners from the contest. Our favorite, called Mystical Morning by Bob McCallion shows the silhouettes of a group of young people as they walk through a mystical forest. As McCallion states about his magnificent shot, "This enchanting tunnel of beech trees has become a magnet for visitors from all over the world and it is hard to avoid people at any time of the year. As I pressed the shutter, a slim, almost elfin-like girl broke away from the main group and started pointing, as if to mimic the surrounding branches. I managed to capture her in mid-pose."
You can see both the winning and commended entries at a special, free exhibition at the National Theatre in London from December 7, 2013 until February 8, 2014. Also, a book called Landscape Photographer of the Year Collection 7, will be released on October 31, 2013 that will feature over 150 of the best entries.
