Winners from the International Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards 2020

Misty mountains, plunging waterfalls, and the delights of the Northern Lights

From the landscape paintings of Constable to the poetry of the Ancient Greeks, the beauty of the natural world has inspired Earth’s greatest artists and writers for longer than history can record.

Today, it’s doing the same for photographers, and the seventh annual International Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards challenged snappers to present our planet at its best. Over 3,800 entries flooded in from all over the world, and the 101 top-ranking images will feature in a book showcasing the best of 2020’s efforts.

These are our favourite shots, from the peaks of the Swiss Alps to the depressions of Death Valley…
