The International Landscape Photographer Of The Year Winners Will Leave You Breathless

Who said landscape photos had to be boring?

For the second year in a row, professional and amateur landscape photographers from all over the world submitted entries to the International Landscape Photographer of the Year competition. The contest, which received 2,604 submissions, aims to select the 101 best landscape images to be made into a book that will eventually be available in various formats, including as a free ebook.

This year's first place prize for International Landscape Photographer was awarded to Luke Austin from Perth, Australia.
