This shot was snapped by Matt Emmett from Reading and won him the overall competition. This creepy corridor shows just how quickly nature starts to takeover when humans leave. It shows an old Royal Air Force base which was loaned to American soldiers to use as a hospital. Handed back to the UK in 1995, the base has been empty since.... It wouldn't be nice to be stuck there in the dark!

Daniel Sands from Wimborne was given special access to an old World War Two bunker, which would have given protection from bombing by German planes. With the help of an electrician, Daniel set up some lights in the dark tunnel to take this image. It's a little bit creepy isn't it!
