Nigel’s photograph The Swimmer was Overall Winner in the annual BBC Staff Photography Competition. There was a record-breaking 1,364 photos submitted with more than 470 participants taking part.
Judges said of Nigel’s image, “A clean, bold composition. The photographer is not afraid to have a photograph of almost nothing. An isolated figure in the landscape. The line of the figure, the line leading out to him, against the line of the horizon: it works perfectly. Subtle bands of colour. Unusual and powerful.”
