Penrith man scoops prestigious photography award

An image of a small stream created by heavy rain among vast Glencoe mountains has won the Landscape Photographer of the Year awards.

Mark Littlejohn, from Penrith, Cumbria, beat thousands of photographs of UK landscapes to scoop the top £10,000 prize for his image which judges said captured "a fleeting moment of beauty" in the Scottish Highlands.

Images ranging from sunset over the North York Moors and a misty early morning in the Peak District to cityscapes dominated by striking buildings and a close-up of a lichen-covered rowan tree were among the winning shots in a series of categories.
