On Monday my fellow judge Sam Larner and I met to choose the winners for my Four Corners Travel Photography Competition, which I ran this month in association with Zinio. It’s a total competition cliché, but I can honestly say that choosing just two winners in each of the four categories was a horrendously difficult decision! There were so many fantastic entries, I was genuinely blown away by what a talented lot my readers are!
Last – but certainly not least – are the winners from the Landscape category. With so many stunning entries, this was certainly my favourite category and yet another tricky decision! The two winners we chose, Dave Carter and Nick Board, both submitted entries which we felt had a bit of a new twist on the traditional landscape shot.

“I’ve recently started as a Freelance Photographer after a 20 year career in IT. I love Adventure Travel and Photography – the two go together perfectly.”
Judges Comments (Sam): It has great depth and has created a strong sense of atmosphere and cleverly through a tight crop has still given the viewer a good understanding of the sheer scale of the landscape.

“The Narrows, the Virgin river cuts through the canyon in Zion National Park, Utah. People armed with stout staffs, and waterproof boots, hike the river.
