UK Mountain Photo of the Year 2022


The winning entry by Anglesey bookkeeper Kat Lawman is an image shot above the clouds at the top of Garnedd Ugain in Eryri (Snowdonia), that shows Jupiter, Saturn and Venus aligning under the watchful gaze of a wild camper. Kat, who also spends her time as a mountain leader and took up photography as a hobby three years ago, said: “It was such a truly earth-moving moment I was reduced to tears. The mountains here in Snowdonia are my life, and my escape … This night in December I managed to get the whole Snowdon massif all to myself, there wasn’t another single person around and this photo will always be the most special one to me”.

The third-place image is also from Snowdonia: a shot showing the Milky Way arching over Llyn Llydaw. Fujifilm ambassador and competition judge Chris Upton said: “A fabulous image. So much impact with the arch of the Milky Way and the mist in the background adding an important element to the picture. Technically excellent, perfect exposure, sharp throughout and great composition”. (Photo by Luke Gage/Mountain Photo of the Year)

This runner-up image by Padam Gurung captured the beauty, scale and adventure of crossing Striding Edge in the Lake District on a winter day. “As I was heading towards Striding Edge in the morning, people were already walking on the ridge. The sun hitting the cliff covered with light atmospheric clouds caused a silhouette of the edge and the people walking on it, so I grabbed my camera and took shots in various compositions”.
