Byline: LEWIS MACDONALD
SCOTLAND is captured at its stunning best by finalists in the Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year contest.
Ian Cameron snapped up the top prize with a series of evocative images of the Highlands, including Ceciles House, a ruined cottage, using his "ancient Pentax" camera.
Ian said: "I am absolutely delighted and surprised to have won."
All of the winning entries will feature in exhibitions and be published this month in a book.
Stuart Low, founder and head judge of the contest, said: "The competition has gone from strength to strength after last year's inaugural competition.
"More than double the number of photographers entered - from the four corners of the globe.
"They've taken to the land, coasts and streets, and captured the most beautiful and diverse views of our amazing country. "
