The 49-year-old said: “It was taken in northern Italy at a place where my wife and I love to hill walk.
“It is a most beautiful and picturesque place and so, as an enthusiastic landscape photographer I am very drawn to the region.
“The image was taken at Passo Giau, a place I have photographed many times, but on this particular evening, all the conditions were right for a beautiful sunset.”
