Sunrise over the Old Man of Storr, Isle of Skye, Scotland by Emmanuel Coupe

Capturing a picture of a treasured view is often the reason many of us buy a camera. The photograph is there to remind us of an event, holiday or just a moment that we hold dear.

Yet I'm sure everyone can relate to the feeling that on viewing the picture it just doesn't capture the emotion, or depth, that the original landscape inspired.

Well, if you need further inspiration to get out there and try again then maybe the winning pictures from the Take a view - Landscape Photographer of the Year award will do just that.

The winner (reproduced above) was taken on the Isle of Skye by Emmanuel Coupe and is titled: Sunrise over the Old Man of Storr, Isle of Skye, Scotland. It's a picture that has both beauty and drama, and you can see why the judges picked it out of the pack.

You can see further images that won in a picture gallery here.

An exhibition of the work can be seen at the Lyttelton Foyer, National Theatre, London from 5 December 2009 until 24 January 2010.
