2016 Photo of the Year winner announced

2016 Photo of the Year winner announced

Our 2016 Photo of the Year competition received hundreds of photo entries taken all over the world, but there could only be five finalists and one winner.

After receiving hundreds of votes between the five photos, which you can see here, we are excited to have a winner.

And the prize goes to...

... Mr J Leonard, with his delightful Srinagar lake scene in Kashmir.

Mr Leonard captured his winning entry on our Rajasthan & Kashmir Explorer tour in India. As the winner of our photo competition he has won £150 off a future holiday with Mountain Kingdoms, congratulations Mr Leonard!

We asked Mr Leonard to tell us about the moment he snapped his prize-winning shot, here's what he had to say:

"During the days we spent in Srinagar we developed a happy relationship with the various boatmen. As journeys to and from the houseboat involved 7 people, we always needed 2 boats between which friendly rivalry developed. On this particular day my boat was winning, and I wanted to capture the evidence. In addition it was a lovely day, and the water was calm enough for Marvell reflections. The whole trip was magical, but the Kashmiri days were extra special because the area was new to me. If anyone wants an insight to northern India without a lot of trekking, I commend unreservedly the Rajasthan and Kashmir holiday – gosh it was fun!"
