A Bridlington amateur photographer’s images has been highly commended in the prestigious Take A View – Landscape Photographer of the Year competition.

Nick Hanson, who has only recently got back into photography after a break of almost a decade, took the photo, Sea of Pink, while strolling along Buckton Cliffs near Bempton.

He entered some of his work into the annual competition and was delighted to discover that two of the photos – the one pictured here and another of a night scene in Glasgow – had been shortlisted as prize-winners.

Sea of Pink was then highly commended in its category and is now on show in a new exhibition, which showcases the winners’ work, at Waterloo station in central London.

Nick was in the capital on Monday to attend the first night of the exhibition.

Having found his hotel, Nick – who completed a web development course at the University of Hull’s Scarborough campus two years ago – wasted little time in getting out and about in London to take some more photos.

Nick said the accolade was a great fillip for him after originally losing interest in the hobby.

“I worked away for a year and got back into photography after a break of 10 years,” he said.

“It went down to the beach for inspiration and got back into it,” he said.

“Now I’ve had two photos shortlisted and it really boosts your confidence.”
