Winners of the South West Coast Path Photographer of the Year Exhibition are having their work displayed at Paddington Station in London until July 30.

The exhibition highlights the diversity, beauty, wildlife, heritage, and seasonality of the coastal environment, on and around the South West Coast Path.

It has been supported by Great Western Railway and Network Rail.

In the Young Photographer of the Year (under 18) second place went to Erica Goldsmith for her black and white image called ‘Over Time’

Erica said: “This photo was taken on a walk along the coast at Little Dartmouth in the Autumn of 2023.

“Whilst I often take photos using a digital camera, this image was taken on my iPhone 11.

“I chose to submit it as a monochrome, because the depth of tone provided by black and white complemented the natural contrasts created by the light.

“My family visit the South Hams annually, where we walk many miles along the coastline, and having done this since I was young this section of South West Coast Path is very familiar to me.

“The category ‘Your Path’ therefore felt particularly pertinent especially as the Hawthorn in focus leans directly over the Coast Path itself.

“I was struck by the extreme angle of the tree caused by the many years of wind coming directly from the sea.

“It is a privilege to have my photo included in the exhibition, and it means a lot to me to be able to share the beauty of the SWCP for all to appreciate and admire.”
