Lake Louise, Canadian Rockies

And the winner is…

Congratulations to Julieanne Reilly who wins the cash prize of £200 with this photo of Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies.

Julieanne says “Mother Nature moved me with her beauty and I captured this shot which I describe as having ‘the best seat in the house’. A natural glacier majestically sits at the end of the aqua marine lake. Being as one with the natural world is an honour.”

A big thank you to everyone who entered our 20th Anniversary photographic competition.

As you know, the subject for our competition was “Natural”, with the ‘natural world’ at the heart of the theme.

You sent us so many good entries, the judges had a really tough time deciding on a winner!
