Sure, it may be pissing it down outside right now. But if you needed any convincing how beautiful this country can be, take a look at the winners of the annual Landscape Photographer of the Year awards.

The annual prize, now in its fifteenth year, has announced its winners – with the stunning ‘Brecon in Winter’ by Will Davies taking home the top £10,000 prize.

Other pictures feature magical rainbows, otherworldly lakes, snow-capped mountains, winning awards across categories including ‘classic view’, ‘coast’, ‘black and white’ and ‘night photography’.

Overall winner Will Davies said: ‘This view is out towards the west of the Brecon Beacons from the Pen y Crug hill fort. I love this area in winter – the mountains somehow feel and look grander and wilder in the snow.

‘The weather was not looking promising as I hiked up in the dark, but luckily the sun broke through right at sunrise, just long enough to get this shot. I have followed Landscape Photographer of the Year for a long time, without previously believing I had photos good enough to enter, so it was a wonderful surprise and a huge honour to find out that I’d won.’
