“Mill Lane is a famous footpath in Halnaker, West Sussex. I was looking for a different composition when I decided to turn the other way and saw this beautiful sight. I love the gate in the background and how the morning light is hitting the leaves and softly entering the tunnel.” – Mara Leite.

“With the glorious ring lighting and splash of golden light at the top, there is a sense of security and protection as much as secrecy that emerges from this delicate photograph where we are beckoned to go forward.
Despite the gate at the far end, perhaps there is an additional feeling that one would never wish to reach it” – Charlie Waite, Awards Founder.

The Young Landscape Photographer of the Year title is awarded to Evie Easterbrook for her image ‘Joining the Queue’ taken in Southwold Harbour.

“I took this photo at Southwold harbour in Suffolk. I was surprised to see the gulls forming such an orderly queue!”– Evie Easterbrook.

“The humour in this photograph is wonderfully conveyed and seems reminiscent of an earlier time; perhaps the fifties and embraces a piece of classic Britain. The red font plays a huge role in the overall feel of the image and with the line of seven seagulls extending diagonally within the triangle of sky, the viewer grins.” – Charlie Waite, Awards Founder.

Huge congratulations to all the category winners, runner up's and those who are commended in this years awards.

LPOTY will be back for it's 15th year in January 2022.
