Judges Comment

Strong. Simple. Historic. What an emotional photo with few elements and outside of the ordinary. We were captured by this from the first moment, and it’s the winner of the I-SHOT-IT Black and White Competition. Congratulations!

Photographers Comment

Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh, October 2018. Leica M6, Ilford HP5 (shot at 800) A hideously windy October day in Edinburgh, with powerful gales ripping in off the Firth of Forth. Freezing cold, but thoroughly content, looking out at the city in the fading afternoon sun- I couldn’t remember the last time I was quite so happy to be somewhere. Sometimes things just come together perfectly.
