Two of Karen’s images have been commended in the 2016 UK Landscape Photographer of the Year.

The ‘Lights of Glencoe’ was the first image to be commended in the Landscape category, also featuring in the Sunday Times Choice Selection http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/eye-of-the-storm-2k369gxrs . Karen describes the image as “A fleeting moment of beautiful light spilling through Glencoe as the sun was setting. Rain from the moody clouds overhead made this image difficult to take as the wind drove water onto the lens, but a little perseverance and the camera captured the last light of the day slipping behind the mountains.”

 

The second image to be commended, also in the Landscape category, was ‘Mountain Storm around Lohan na h’Achlaise’. Says Karen of the image, “Early morning capture of some moody clouds sweeping across the mountains surrounding Lohan na h’Achlaise. Dramatic but peaceful, and truly beautiful to see, the scene depicts everything that makes Scotland a very special landscape indeed.”

Both images will be in the Awards book and on display at the London Waterloo Exhibition.
