Landscape 500 Competition – top ten

Recently I entered a collection of images into the Landscape 500 photography competition. This image from Longreach in outback Qld managed to score 10th place! There were some unbelievable photographs chosen in the top 10, congratulations to Jamie Nicolaou for his stunning Pilbara lightning shot which won the competition. Check it out here. Five other images I had entered scored silver, and three bronze.

For me this image really captures the feel of the stunning wide open spaces that can be found in Western Qld. Anywhere from Longreach to Birdsville scenes like this are a common sight – I hope it inspires you to get out there and experience some of the amazing scenes we have on our doorstep!
