Open Photographer of the Year

Mieke Boynton, Australia

Dragonfire, Braided Rivers Of Southern Iceland

 

‘I travelled to Iceland last year and chartered a Cessna 207 to photograph the spectacular “braided rivers”. As the mighty glaciers
travel down the mountains, they grind up the rock underneath, and as the melted water fans out across the river deltas, these
suspended rock particles cause a slight milkiness to the water. The colours alter according to the presence of different elements and
minerals such as sulphur and iron, and the endless variations are absolutely breathtaking. It wasn’t until later that I saw the firebreathing
dragon in the photo, but now that I’ve seen it, I can’t see anything else! Nature is truly an artist.’

‘I absolutely love the raw thrill of flying, and to see the delicate intricacy of Nature’s Art from 1000-2000 feet above fills me with joy and
delight. I travel to remote and inaccessible areas – many of which can’t be photographed by drone – and many of these places
resemble giant abstract paintings. I am mesmerised and fascinated by Nature’s Abstract Art. I am inspired by the photography of
Andre Ermolaev and the artistic styles of MC Escher, Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian and the Papunya Tula artists.’

2019 Major Amateur Winner

Carlos F. Turienzo, Spain

Waterfall Lofoten, Norway

 

‘Photographed during a beautiful sunset – the result of 7 vertical stitched images. In my travels I always try to visit less known places like this beautiful waterfall and it really was worthwhile, in fact I went again one night and I managed to capture it with northern lights, but that is another story.’

Lukasz Czech, Poland

Tyniec Monastery, Poland

Hold your left mouse button down over the image and drag your mouse to view the 360 view of the image.

 

‘Founded in the 11th century, this is the oldest order in Poland – The Benedictine Abbey. The order is located in Tyniec, within easy reach of Cracow. It was built on a steep, calcic rock rising above a bank of the Vistula river. I the idea of this immersive panoramic picture two years earlier – I had just been waiting for convenient weather conditions. Sunrise is always a lottery. On that day I was incredibly lucky. I have been passionate about panoramic photography for 11 years. My favorite theme is mountain panoramas.’
