    Binnein Beag through Steall, Scottish Highlands, by Scott Robertson (Judge’s Choice – Charlie Waite)
    The feeling here is not of threat but of a benign, docile, almost ‘living being’. The superb juxtaposition of triangles and diagonals all interlocking with one another brings great aesthetic pleasure. The small splash of light illuminating the gorge below is critical as the role of the foreground is as to support and to cradle the mountain beyond. Had this foreground been black and featureless, the image would not have worked so well.

  • Three Cliffs Bay, Wales, UK
    This is a great spot on the Gower Peninsula on the Welsh coast. As happens often, this project required some patience. My friend and fellow photographer Samuel Ryan walked out into my shot to take in the view from the cliff edge. I waited for him to take up a placement in the frame as the last hour of light burst through the clouds with a warm evening glow.
