Landscape Photographer of the Year 2018 overall winner

“I had set out to shoot the sunrise upriver and saw this unusual and dramatic formation of ice around the rocks; right then I knew I had my spot.” Pete wins the title and the top prize of £10,000. “When he [Charlie Waite, the founder of the Awards], told me I had won the entire competition, I could not believe it – I've won a category? No, the full thing. I was absolutely ecstatic, in fact far beyond that, I can't even put it into words. The call ended with Charlie congratulating me again and I don't mind admitting that I did a good few laps of the kitchen shouting for joy and some fist pumping. It didn't seem real; it was dreamlike. It is so hard to take in and it reallywas one of the best moments of my life. Utterly overwhelming and simply amazing.” Ice Spikes, Glencoe, Scotland by Pete Rowbottom
