Alex Wolfe-Warman won the urban category of the landscape photographer of the year award with his photo of terraced houses in Bristol.

He took the photo during a hot-air balloon flight his wife bought him for his birthday.

He said: “We had a wonderful flight on a very clear day – the evening light was very beautiful, and it was completely still. We took off from Ashton Court, flew over Suspension Bridge over Park Street and College Green, then Queens Square and Temple Meads out towards the suburbs.”
