It showcases the very best images of the natural world in an amazing backlit cinematic display. The 100 award winning images on show have been selected from 1000’s of international entries. Winning pictures are chosen above all for their aesthetic qualities – but also for their extraordinary, often technically amazing and sometimes shocking reflections of events in nature.
