The Landscape Photographer of the Year 2011 exhibition at the Lyttelton Exhibition Space is something I wandered into, and I’m so glad I did. For anyone looking for inspiration beyond the city or refreshing holiday ideas, this is the perfect place to start.
The Award was founded in 2006 by Charlie Waite one of the leading international landscape photographers. With an impressive 30 books to his credit, Waite’s photography has a unique serene and spiritual quality to it. And what’s interesting to note is that all the photographs that have been chosen for the display exude that very same quality.
I like my landscapes stunning and awe inspiring. And that’s just what you get to see at this exhibition.
The above is one of my favorite images and so is the one below.
I think I’m beginning to have a thing for Scotland. Must plan a trip there soon.
Seeee… that’s what this exhibition does to you. You start making a list of places in your head; and you fall in love with the natural and the man made all over again.
Top on my list of things to explore this year (inspired by photographs at this exhibition) are the Lloyds building and the Round the Island yacht race around the Isle of Wight in June. A bit random in my choice, but the images of these were so inspiring that they have become must-see must-go’s.
Do stop by the exhibition if you have the time. It has been extended by a couple of weeks by popular demand.
