Peakof thebunch; Incredible views of Scotland caught on camera as part of national photographer competition Incredible views of Scotland caught on camera as part of national photographer competition STUNNING SNAPS PHOTO AWARDS SHOW BEST OF NATION'S LANDSCAPE.

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. "
