Mark Lister, 30, from Collier Row, was selected as a runner-up in the British Heart Foundation’s landscape contest after taking the snap in Grinton, in the Yorkshire Dales.

All entrants were tasked with taking their pictures near areas where the charity runs its fundraising hikes and treks.

Mark, an amateur photographer and NHS procurement officer in Ilford, was delighted to find out his picture had been rated so highly.

“I was surprised and honoured to be selected as a runner-up for my photograph, which I took while on holiday,” said Mark.

“During the week, there were lots of showers and sunny spells which led to an array of rainbows.

“The single tree on top of the hill led to a great opportunity to shoot a silhouette.

“I like to challenge myself to produce something different every time I go out with my camera.”

Mark’s prize is a place on one of the British Heart Foundation’s hikes or treks.

The charity’s head of events, Nancy Prior, said: “Mark Lister’s photograph reflects the task we set photographers to capture these natural and dramatic landscapes at their best and inspire people to visit them.”

Mark’s picture is currently being displayed at digitalcameraworld.com along with other great photographs.
