Amazing photos: Ferry battling HUGE storm in Sussex pic wins award

Updated: 

Shrouded in an ominous cloak of huge waves and whipped-up sea spray, we're glad we're not passengers on this ferry.

But the eerie scene of the boat braving stormy seas in Sussex has actually won a category within The Landscape Photographer of the Year 2013 awards.

Described as 'Ferry leaving Newhaven harbour in storm, East Sussex, England' the pic was snapped by David Lyon and won the 'Your View' category.

The 'Overall Winner' of the Landscape Photographer of the Year 2013 was 'Mist and Reflections, Crummock Water, Cumbria, England' taken by Tony Bennett.


The 2013 Awards are being held in association with Network Rail for the fourth year.

David Higgins, Network Rail chief executive said: "This competition celebrates something very special - the way this country looks in all its different ways. Once again, Britain's beauty and diverse nature has been captured magnificently."

All successful entries can be seen in a free exhibition at the National Theatre in London from 7 December 2013.

There's also an Awards book, Landscape Photographer of the Year Collection 7, by AA Publishing, featuring over 150 winning and commended entries from this year's competition, published on 31 October 2013.
