Nature photography buffs: it’s that time of year again. The winners of the 2022 edition of the Nature TTL photographer of the year awards are in – and they’re as mesmerising as ever.

Nature TTL’s competition is all about the natural world, ranging from snow leopards in the Himalayas and stingrays in the Maldives to a hare on the streets of the German city of Kassel.

This year’s competition saw 8,000 images compete across eight categories: Animal Behaviour, Camera Traps, Landscapes, Small World, The Night Sky, Underwater, Urban Wildlife and Wild Portraits. The ‘overall winner’ took home a grand prize of £1,500.

You can find out more about the winners on the TTL website here, but, in the meantime, here are a few of our favourites.
