And the winner in 2013 is....

Timo Lieber!!!!

of Great Britain

 

 

'Earlier in the year I was asked to spend several weeks on a project in California. The opportunity to photograph the state’s beautiful landscapes came as an added bonus. Studying the route for the way back from Death Valley, I figured that one desert was never enough and headed for Dumont Dunes. A building sand storm chased away a group of dune riders, who obligingly left behind curved tracks providing additional structure to the dunes pattern. And again, as ever, I am captivated by human presence, so fragile against nature.'
