Congratulations are due to Antony Spencer for his wintry picture of Corfe Castle in Dorset, which has won him this year’s British landscape photographer of the year. A well-deserving winner, a curved lead in line composition balanced by lovely subdued colours and shapes in the sky, and unlike some previous winners – and perhaps the otherwise-excellent breakfast and steam engine shot that won the young prize – Spencer’s picture is also without doubt… a landscape.

Sadly for the other winning photographers, their pictures aren’t readily available but are hidden behind the Times’s paywall, but you can see some here , here and here. Also read Tim Parkin‘s views.
