<P>The winners of the Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards were announced late last month, and the entries are absolutely stunning. The sevenyearold competition features shots from around the United Kingdom to celebrate "the rich diversity of Britain's landscape."</P><P></P><P>Photographer Tony Bennett took the top spot (and a little over $16,000 in prize money) with his shot of autumn mist drifting over Crummock Water in Cumbria, England.</P><P></P><P>If you're in the UK, there will be a free exhibition of the entries from Dec. 7, 2013 to Feb. 8, 2014. For now, take a look at some of the incredible shots below.</P><P></P><P>Sandy CayThis astronaut photograph taken on Nov. 27, 2010, provides a view of tidal flats and channels near Sandy Cay, on the western side of Long Island, and along the eastern margin of the Great Bahama Bank, on the islands of Bahamas. The continuously exposed parts of the island are brown, a result of soil formation and vegetation growth. To the north of Sandy Cay, an offwhite tidal flat composed of carbonate sediments is visible; light bluegreen regions indicate shallow water on the tidal flat.</P><P></P><P>Lake NasserEgypt's Lake Nasser was photographed in January 2005 from the International Space Station.</P><P></P><P>Sahara DesertTassili n'Ajjer National Park, part of the Sahara Desert, has a bonedry climate with scant rainfall, yet it doesn't blend in with Saharan dunes. Instead, the rocky plateau rises above the surrounding sand seas. This image from 2000 was made from multiple observations by the Landsat 7 satellite, using a combination of infrared, nearinfrared and visible light to better distinguish among the park's various rock types.</P><P></P><P>Hydrogen Sulfide and Dust Plumes on Namibia's CoastCloudless skies allowed a clear view of dust and hydrogen sulfide plumes along the coast of Namibia in early August 2010. Multiple dust plumes blow off the coast toward the ocean, most or all of them probably arising from stream beds. Unlike the reddishtan sands comprising the dunes directly south of the Kuiseb River, the streamchannel sediments are lighter in color. Wind frequently pushes dust plumes seaward along the Namibian coast.</P><P></P><P>EgyptThe Nile River and its delta look like a brilliant, longstemmed flower in this astronaut photograph of the southeastern Mediterranean Sea, as seen from the International Space Station on Oct. 28, 2010. The Cairo metropolitan area forms a particularly bright base of the flower.</P><P></P><P>Islands of Four MountainsThe snowcapped volcanoes composing the Islands of the Four Mountains in Alaska's Aleutian Island chain look suspiciously like alien worlds in this August 2010 image from the ASTER camera aboard NASA's orbiting Terra satellite.</P><P></P><P>Aurora AustralisThis NASA image shows the aurora australis observed cheap nfl jerseys from the International Space Station on May 29, 2010. This aurora image was taken during a geomagnetic storm that was most likely caused by a coronal mass ejection from the sun on May 24.</P><P></P><P>Sarychev VolcanoAstronauts at the International Space Station captured this striking view of the Sarychev volcano on Russia's Kuril Islands in an early stage of eruption on June 12, 2009. Sarychev Peak is one of the most active volcanoes in the Kuril Islands chain.</P><P></P><P>Arctic EclipseNASA's Terra satellite was rounding the top of the globe making its way from the eastern tip of Siberia and across the Arctic Ocean toward northwest Russia when it captured this unique view of a total solar eclipse on Aug. 1, 2008. In the area shown in the image, the sun was obscured for about two minutes. As Earth rotated, the shadow moved southeast across the surface. At the same time, the satellite crossed the Arctic with its path nearly perpendicular to the eclipse. 12.</P><P></P><P>Mount EverestAstronauts captured this image highlighting the northern entry to Mount Everest from Tibet on Jan. 6. Climbers travel along the East Rongbuk Glacier, shown on the lower left, to camp at the base of Changtse mountain.</P><P></P><P>Island BeautyThe south end of Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas shimmers in turquoise waters in this 2002 photo from the International Space Station.</P><P></P><P>Massive SandstormA massive sandstorm sweeps over Qatar as it races south toward southeastern Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates on Feb. 15, 2004. A major upperlevel, lowpressure system over southwestern Asia led to a series of storms sweeping through the area. The crew of the International Space Station captured this image with a digital camera using a 50millimeter lens.</P><P></P><P>Lake Naivasha, KenyaFlowers grow year round in sundrenched Kenya, and nowhere are they more plentiful than Lake Naivasha, shown here. In this view from space, bright white squares mix with fields of green, tan and purple along the shores of the lake. Sunlight glints off the long rows of glass greenhouses, turning them silvery blue and white. Fallow fields are tan and pink, while growing plants turn the ground bright green. Roses, lilies and carnations are the most common flowers grown in cheap jerseys the greenhouses and fields scattered around the lake.</P><P></P><P>Cumulonimbus Cloud Over AfricaHigh above the African continent, tall, dense cumulonimbus clouds, meaning "cloud heap" in Latin, are the result of atmospheric cheap jerseys instability. The clouds can form alone, in clusters or along a cold front in a squall line. The high energy of these storms is associated with heavy precipitation, lightning, high wind speeds and tornadoes.</P><P></P><P>NASA Released New Images of Earth at NightThe new images were taken over 22 days by a satellite imaging system and provide the most detailed look yet at the world's night lights.</P>
