Photographer of the Year

Yesterday we popped into the National Theatre on the South Bank to see the annual jewellery exhibition Dazzle.
Some excellent work on show and for sale.
While there I noticed there was the exhibition of entries for the 4th Landscape Photographer of the Year competition. Very impressive, some wonderful photos.
 You can see the winners here:

There is a well produced book of all the photos for £25 (£5 discount in the National Theatre shop but even better only £12.15 at Amazon UK)
