Historic Photographer of The Year 2018 winners revealed

The Historic Photographer of the Year Awards has attracted astonishing entries from amateurs and professionals who have climbed, hiked and trekked their way to snap stunning historic places from every corner of the globe, from iconic landmarks to far-flung forgotten ruins. Check them out!
This stunning photograph was taken by Daniel Burton and is the overall winning image, capturing the remote medieval island commune of Mont Saint-Michel, in France. It is one of the most recognisable and visited historical landmarks in the region. This photograph shows the curious land formations known locally as Les Méandres. The channels fill up in late afternoon and reflect the setting sun to create a mirror pool effect.

This is the Jaisalmer Fort in Rajasthan, India. It is believed to be one of the very few ‘living forts’ in the world, as nearly one fourth of the old city's population still lives within the fort. The massive yellow sandstone walls are a tawny lion colour during the day, fading to honey-gold as the sun sets, which camouflages the fort in the yellow desert. For this reason it is also known as the Golden Fort.
