Our World is Beautiful: November’s UK Winner

CEWE’s Our World is Beautiful photography competition is well underway, and it’s now time to announce our monthly winner for November.

Once again we were spoilt for choice when it came to choosing our second winning image. In the end though everyone in the office agreed that Stephan Gimpel’s stunning shot of a sunbeam shining into a canyon was a very worthy winner!

Illumination – Stephan Gimpel

Taken in Arizona, USA

Illumination

“The mid-day sun casts a light beam in a narrow sandstone slot canyon in Arizona, USA. Apart from the unique colours and textures in the canyon, I particularly like this shot due to the varied light effects caused by the sun hitting first the rock and then the sand floor.”

Congratulations Stephan on taking such a beautiful photograph! As I mentioned, we were spoilt for choice when choosing a winner this month, so here are a few of the other entries that caught our eye and made us say “ooooooh!” in admiration…
