The most stunning images from the TTL Photographer of the Year Awards for Nature
It hasn’t been a very good year for photographers.
Most cameras have been limited to selfies and the living room window due to limitations on travel both nationally and internationally, but a few courageous souls have managed to venture out enough to get some spectacular images.
The Nature TTL Photographer Of The Year Awards honor the best in nature photography, with over 8,000 photos competing for the £1,500 top prize in categories spanning from animal portraiture to underwater and landscape photography this year. These are some of our favorites…
