This Year’s Top 101 Landscape Photographs From All Over The World

I am reposting  an article I originally saw tweeted by Shahbaz Majeed. Shahbaz is a first class  Scottish Photographer whom I had the pleasure of knowing as well as seeing lots of his work at the Dundee Photographic Society weekly meetings. The article is entitled the best 101 photographs in the world. They are stunning photographs and it is well worth reading the article by Rebecca Lucero and reviewing the top one hundred in the competition for the best in the world. All became clear when half way down one of the selections was by non other than Shahbaz himself.

The image below is one of the images Shahbaz entered into this prestigious international competition. To be in the final one hundred is a great honour and surely cements his reputation as one of the country’s top photographers.

He is certainly putting Dundee on the map by producing a series of prize winning and noteworthy images of Dundee and Scotland. His own website, frame focus capture,  contains the image above and many more for sale as well as an excellent blog on how he makes his fabulous images.

Landscape photography is enjoying a great explosion of interest as Rebecca explains in her blog and its good to know that Scotland as a destination is in the top of international lists of destinations as is its leading practitioners of the art. Well done Shahbaz  – keep it up.

“We can all agree that Mother Nature is the original and most prolific artist on the face of the earth. Humans have long attempted to capture her beauty through many artistic mediums, but it’s not until recent technological advances in photography that anyone has even come close to doing it any justice. ”
