The LPOTY 2017 exhibition on the upper level at waterloo

 

It’s that magical time of year again when the Landscape Photographer of the Year exhibition launches in Waterloo before it tours many major stations in the UK.

Photographers, press and Ray Mears turned up to see the images and present the awards to the winners alongside organiser and renowned British landscape photographer Charlie Waite.  

 

The LPOTY 2017 winners

 

ePHOTOzine's events reporter, Stuart Fawcett, got the chance to chat to a few of the current and past winners including, from top left, Nick Joyner for his 'Canary Wharf Reflections', 'Youth Living The View' and 'Your View' winner Hannah Faith Jackson for 'Pipe dream, Tobermory, Isle of Mull' and for 'Return from the hill, Lairig Leachach' (Hannah was also last year’s young landscape photographer of the year). Another young entrant was this year's Young Landscape Photographer of the Year 2017, Andrew Bulloch for 'Skatepark under the Northern Lights, Musselburgh, Scotland'. Andrew also won the 'Youth Classic View' with 'Stormy seas at Portknockie, Morayshire'. Also, there was Michael Hyde with 'Spinal axis, Happisburgh, Norfolk, England'.

In the lower row is Simon Hadleigh-Sparks for 'Relax in The City Redux, London' – this photo triple composite was taken on aSigmaa 105mm lens and out of a car window while his better half drove - great teamwork. Philip Selby had 2 winning photos with 'Kennet & Avon Canal' and 'Silbury Hill with in Wiltshire'. The last 2 together were William John Massey with 'Adult Urban View - Highly Commended' for 'New Lanark Village, Lanarkshire, Scotland' and Martin Pickles for 'Damp and misty Dungeness, Kent, England'. Both these chaps, along with another, were from Wokingham Camera Club who took 3 awards that night.

 

The LPOTY 2017 winning images

 

The theme behind all of these photos and a primary sponsor is the 'Visit Britain' initiative. With 37 million inbound visits to the UK last year 'Visit Britain' want to keep promoting the amazing beauty to be found in the British Isles and keep visitors inspired to come to the UK.  

 

Ray Mears in front of the winning entries

 

A strong sentiment of the evening from all was the emotion best described by Ray Mears that these images 'show the camera used as a device to express our response to the world around us'.
