[www.keralites.net] Dramatic Beauty Of Britain's Landscapes..


Pictured: The dramatic beauty of Britain's landscapes as you've never seen them before

Bleak, isolated, damaged yet beautiful, these stunning images show the country's landscapes as you've never seen them before.

From majestic rolling hills and the remote beauty of salt marshes to detailed close-ups of toadstools and other woodland fungi, these are just a few of the incredible images to be exhibited as part of the Landscape Photographer of the Year competition.

The popular photographic award, now in its fifth year, culminates in a stunning exhibition of more than 100 photographs that shows the dramatic beauty and variety of our country.

Mystical: The isolated Rodel Saltmarsh on the Isle of Harris, in Scotland's Outer Hebrides, is one of the images shortlisted for the exhibition

It also reminds us of the need to safeguard this precious legacy for future generations.

The exhibition is being held at the National Theatre.

Awards founder, Charlie Waite, founder of the awards, said: 'I frequently say that the awards would not have been such a success had it not been for the National Theatre.

'They very kindly agreed to let us hold an exhibition in, what I believe, is one of the best and most accessible spaces in London before even the first entry had arrived and their willingness to support the whole project has never wavered.

'Seeing the images projected on to the outside of the Theatre on the opening night each year is always a great thrill for me the culmination of a lot of work by all involved and a true expression of the vast amount of photographic talent that our entrants have.'

Mr Waite, will be giving talks in the NT Bookshop at 7.45pm on December 13 and 14, as well as January 23 and 24. Guided tours of the exhibition will also take place on the same dates.

This years Awards are held in association with Network Rail, with the exhibition sponsored by Epson UK.
