Landscape of the year 2013

The Take a View landscape photographer of the year 2013 is for us the UK’s annual Oscars of landscape images. This year’s worthy winner is Tony Bennett LRPS.

This is the image that won the competition for Landscape Photographer of the Year 2013.

A photograph of autumn mists drifting over Crummock Water in the English Lake District captivated the judges and wins top prize in this year’s search for the UK’s ‘Landscape Photographer of the Year’. Derbyshire-based photographer, Tony Bennett becomes the seventh person to win the overall title and the £10,000 prize. His picture was chosen, by the judges, from the thousands of entries that showcased the richly diverse landscape of the UK.

The category winner for the classic view of the year was our old favourite but sadly missed tree on Lochan na h-Achlaise on Rannoch Moor. The photographer David Breen has called it the Ghost of Rannoch Moor.

We are now on volume seven of the annual book produced of the judges best selections from thousands of entries. We have the full set and its an inspirational read. Sadly we missed the entry date this year due being exceptionally busy at the time we would normally have entered. However, a couple of the photographers we have covered in this blog are in such as Ian Cameron and David Mould – both of whom got two images each in the book and one from each is featured below.

    This is a fantastic annual event, and I am eagerly awaiting my chance to head down to the Southbank on my annual pilgrimage to be inspired. It is a superb exhibition seen live. The printing is always stunning.
