    Thórsmörk (the valley of Thor), Iceland. After a morning full of drama, during which we almost ‘drowned’ our car in a river – and then pulled out a young Frenchman who had – we reached Thórsmörk, in the south of Iceland. We walked up to a viewpoint where we could see...exactly nothing, due to the fog. We waited, and eventually the fog started to lift, but I still needed to wait a lot longer for a car to appear in the perfect position to add a sense of scale to the mountain landscape.

    Take a look at some stunning photographs as the UK competition offers an insight into the mesmerizing landscapes, wildlife and nature of Earth. Participants include both professional and amateur photographers.
