A picture of a Gamekeeper wins an award

A picture of a gamekeeper at work on his grouse moor has won the the Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards ?Living the View? category, which is for images of people working in the landscape.

The picture was taken by Jon Brook of his friend Richard Wolfenden, headkeeper on the Fourstones estate, on Burnmoor, near Bentham in North Yorkshire. Mr Brook said: ?I?ve often watched heather burning on local moors and it can be quite dramatic. Richard rang me in early March and suggested I come out to take a picture. I took it at sunset from the top of Richard?s Argo during a 30-second burst of flame.
