The overall winner of the 2019 open competition is Mieke Boynton from Australia. Her winning shot, called ‘Dragonfire’, shows braided rivers in Iceland. She said: ‘I travelled to Iceland last year and chartered a Cessna 207 to photograph the spectacular braided rivers. As the mighty glaciers travel down the mountains, they grind up the rock underneath, and as the melted water fans out across the river deltas, these suspended rock particles cause a slight milkiness to the water. The colours alter according to the presence of different elements and minerals such as sulphur and iron, and the endless variations are absolutely breathtaking. It wasn’t until later that I saw the fire-breathing dragon in the photo, but now that I’ve seen it, I can’t see anything else! Nature is truly an artist’
