Founded 10 years ago by internationallyacclaimed landscape photographer Charlie Waite, the Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards celebrate the very best of British landscapes. Here’s our pick of this year’s winning images taken on a Nikon OVERALL winner Starling Vortex Matthew Cattell, Brighton, England During the winter months, hundreds of thousands of starlings assemble at Brighton Pier to roost for the night. The birds gather in large flocks and perform beautiful aerial displays before dropping down to the relative safety of the structure below. Standing on the pier enables the viewer to witness these so-called murmurations from within as the birds flow and cascade around you. Nikon D810, 70-200mm f/2.8, 1/10 sec, f/11, ISO200 HIGHLY COMMENDED, YOUR VIEW Giants Above David Harris, Picton Castle, Pembrokeshire, Wales I find this plant, Gunnera, almost other-worldly due to the size of its…

top 10 photo apps

(you’ll actually use!) Nikon recently launched its SnapBridge app for iPhones and iPads, following the debut of its Android version in the spring. SnapBridge is set to become a standard feature of new Nikon cameras, blending wireless tethering (the ability to control your camera from a smartphone or tablet) with automatic image downloading. It’s early days, but the technology has bags of potential. Obviously it’s not the only smartphone app that can make a difference to your photography, though, so we thought we’d provide a round-up of this and other apps that make it easier to plan, shoot, edit and share your pictures, whether you’re at home or out and about. Photography apps aren’t all about face-swapping and adding ‘vintage’ filter effects. These are tools in the same way that Photoshop is,…

TYPE: Location planning app BY: PhotoPills FORMAT: iOS only (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch – no AR view in the latter) PRICE: £7.99/$9.99 What the app does This all-round app aims to get you in the right place at the right time, enabling you to predict when and where the sun or the moon or the milky way will appear at your location. As well as plotting your position on a map, one of the big selling points of PhotoPills is its use of a 3D Augmented Reality (AR) overlay on your phone’s display to help you to find the optimum framing, visualise the depth of field through a scene and more. When to use it Although it can’t arrange the perfect weather for you, PhotoPills can do pretty much everything else to swing the odds of getting a cracking…

the photographer’s ephemeris

TYPE: Location planning app BY: Crookneck Consulting FORMAT: iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch), Android PRICE: £6.99/$8.99 (iOS) £4.08/$4.99 (Android) What the app does Like PhotoPills, The Photographer’s Ephemeris (TPE) is an app that gives you the edge when planning your outdoor photography shoots. Although PhotoPills is currently our go-to app for this kind of thing, it isn’t available for Android devices. As a result, TPE remains the number one choice for people with non-Apple devices. Even so, it’s a close contest between the two apps on iOS, as there are features that each offers that the other doesn’t. For example, unlike PhotoPills, TPE includes Google Maps, which some people prefer. When to use it TPE enables you to plan your landscapes and other outdoor shots well in advance, calculating the moonrise/moonset and sunrise/sunset times and the angles of each. You…
