Helen Gibson - Fontmell Down

Judges comments: We liked the composition of this image of one of the classic views from the downlands of the AONB. The dark hill-top beech copse on the right is balanced by the dark cloud on the left and the streak of yellow flowering gorse leads your eye into the image. It is an optimistic image; the sunlight is chasing away the frost and mist that clings stubbornly in the vale.
