The Outdoor Photographer of the Year was announced at the Photography Show at the NEC on 28th March as Stian Nesoy.

This image has been captured in a wide panoramic format to show the sheer expanse of the surroundings.

Stian explains: "I captured the image just before the sun broke the horizon, making for a softly lit scene that helps the textures come alive."
