Sometimes, a picture really is worth a thousand words.
The winners of the Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards were announced late last month, and the entries are absolutely stunning. The seven-year-old competition features shots from around the United Kingdom to celebrate "the rich diversity of Britain's landscape."
Photographer Tony Bennett took the top spot (and a little over $16,000 in prize money) with his shot of autumn mist drifting over Crummock Water in Cumbria, England.
If you're in the UK, there will be a free exhibition of the entries from Dec. 7, 2013 to Feb. 8, 2014. For now, take a look at some of the incredible shots below.
