The 2022 Landscape Photographer of the Year competition highlights the vast splendor of Britain’s environments, from hazy lochs and grand mountainous vistas to water-side pedestrian paths.
Winners of this year’s competition include both natural and man-made elements, such as a steam-engulfed train roaring across the Fellowman Crosses Ribblehead viaduct or a glimmering celestial sky above the Durdle Door limestone arch.
The competition joins Network Rail for a traveling exhibition that traveled across the United Kingdom. It began on October 31 at Paddington Station. View the winning images on the competition’s website or by purchasing a copy of this year’s book.
