Michael B Rasmussen’s picture of a pine wood in Denmark won first prize in the Nature and Wildlife category. He said: "I search for patterns and lines created by nature like the creek that surrounds the pine forest in my winning image. But I also look for man-made patterns and lines like curvy roads and tracks from agricultural equipment."
