Landscape Photographer of the Year

Verdict: Go see it
Where: National Theatre, Waterloo
When: 1 December 201119 February 2012

Every year, any photographer can enter the ‘take a view’ competition for landscape photographer of the year – as long as the photograph was taken in Great Britain,

The competition is now in its fourth year and they receive thousands of entries.  Of those received, the winners along with up to around 100 other photographs are on display in the Mezzanine section of the National Theatre.

It’s perfect for anyone interested on photography or not, and the ideal stroll during the interval if you’re watching a play at the theatre.

There are a range of landscapes on display from the classically beautiful, to the artistic, through to urban cityscapes.

Nobody can visit this exhibit and leave disappointed, there’s a photograph for everyone here and it will inspire you to get out there and explore more of Great Britain.

It’s surprising that a photo of electricity pylons or Torness nuclear power plant can be made to seem scenic.  The most arresting photograph for me was a shot of London’s square mile at night (pictured above).

The only disappointment you may experience will be in finding out that you can’t purchase prints of the photographs for your home.
