Landscape Photographer of the Year: Collection 9 is a celebration of the work of the nation’s best amateur and professional photographers, and here we have selected some of the most luminous images of Scotland.

The Landscape Photographer of the Year competition, now in its ninth year, is one of the UK’s most prestigious photography contests. It was founded by leading landscape photographer Charlie Waite to provide an “ongoing platform for capturing images that best symbolise our land and our times, and that will stand as a record of our country”.

Charlie has taken photos professionally for 35 years, published 28 books on photography and held more than 30 solo exhibitions across Europe, the US, Japan and Australia.

So take in the views here, then get out and capture some of your own…
