“Comet NeoWise Setting, Marin” by Tanmay Sapkal. Mt. Tamalpais, Marin, CA, USA. Winner, International Photograph of the Year.

Every corner of our world has unbelievable beauty.

From over 4,500 entries, 100 images were selected for their quality in the 2021 International Landscape Photographer of the Year awards. This annual contest has been going strong for eight years; and this year, an incredible photo of the Comet Neowise as well as a portfolio of images from Cappadocia, Turkey, took home the top awards.

“Reflector” by Ben Goode. Lake Bonney, South Australia.


Tanmay Sapkal’s photograph of the comet falling down over Mount Tamalpais just north of San Francisco was singled out as the International Landscape Photograph of the Year. In the image, the fog rolls over the hills and creates the perfect atmosphere to take in the breathtaking shooting star. For Sapkal, landscape photography is a creative outlet that allows him to explore the world in his free time away from work as a hardware design engineer for Apple. His win proves that you don’t need to be a professional to take award-winning photographs.[…]
