Sunrise over Skye: Dramatic landscape wins photographer £10,000

Such is its breathtaking beauty, it's hard to believe that this picture of dawn light breaking through the clouds and shining over the Isle of Skye hasn't been painstakingly painted.

But it's a camera and Mother Nature we have to thank for the image, which has won the top prize in this year's Landscape Photograph of the Year award.

Paris-based Emmanuel Coupe won £10,000 after his picture of the rocky pinnacles of the Old Man of Storr and the sea beyond was chosen as the best of thousands of entries showing some of the UK's most beautiful views.


Breathtaking beauty: This image of light falling through the clouds over the Isle of Skye has won the top prize in this year's Landscape Photograph of the Year award

Other prize-winning photographs in categories in the competition included images of Westminster Palace, Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire and Aberdeen Harbour.

Organisers said the competition, set up by landscape photographer Charlie Waite, aims to highlight the important interaction between people and places and showcase the diversity of the UK's scenery - from ancient woodlands to cityscapes.

Mr Waite said: 'The standard of entries has been exceptional and proves what enthusiasm we have for both our photography and our landscape.'

The award-winning shots will be among 100 best photographs from the competition at the Take A View - Landscape Photographer of the Year 2009 exhibition, supported by Natural England & the English National Park Authorities, at the National Theatre in London from December 5.

Dr Helen Phillips, Natural England's chief executive, said: 'This extraordinary collection of photographs captures the uniqueness of our landscapes, and the natural and cultural riches they contain.

'It serves as a reminder of the enduring beauty of our countryside, its wonderful wildlife and of the vital natural services - like clean air and water, fertile soils, and natural adaptation to climate change - that a healthy environment provides.'
