Here is a message from Charlie Waite -
"From the days of early Homo sapiens man’s activity on earth would have been depicted by often sophisticated paintings and scratchings on to rock surfaces. In these days where information technology delivers in excess of three hundred million images a day through social networking sites, it may be interesting to take note that modern Homo sapiens are still preoccupied with 21st century versions of those sketches on rocks. We are in danger of taking our primary truths from technology which could result in distancing ourselves from the natural world. Thankfully however the most popular style of images that are being exchanged through the vast array of social networking sites are of a landscape nature, thus reminding us of what we treasure and what should be regarded as sacred. Needless to say, this confirms most empathetically that millions of us experience the impulse and the need to either record or create images that arise perhaps from a state of wonder at the beauty of our world. I have often felt that the landscape photograph is in a sense a process of paying homage to something that the landscape photographer perceives to be beautiful, and the resulting image is a manifestation of that very personal dialogue that the photographer has with their subject. Landscape Photographer of the Year is a wonderful platform for photographers to express their relishing of what the British landscape means to them and most especially what it meant to them at that most special of moments."
