Ribblehead Viaduct LPOTY - Network Rail Award Winner

As I haven’t posted a blog entry for a while now I thought I would write a short post about my recent competition success in Landscape Photographer of the Year .

Alongside my highly commended image of Wyming Brook in this years British Wildlife Photography Awards, I am absolutely thrilled to have won an award in the 2016 Landscape Photographer of the Year competition, winning this year’s Network Rail category. As a passionate landscape photographer it has been a long standing goal to be featured in this prestigious competition, so to win an award feels incredible!

To have my image of the Ribblehead viaduct chosen as the category winner is a real honour, as it is a location that has always inspired me. The sheer scale of the construction, the remarkable work that went into its completion and the stunning setting make this a top notch location for me. 

The awards ceremony and following exhibition were held in Waterloo Station, London, with the exhibition staying on display in the station before moving around the country from February 5th 2017 on a nationwide tour.

Finally I would like to congratulate the rest of this years commended and award winning photographers. The standard of images is truly incredible and it really motivates me to keep improving and progressing with my own work.
