Winners of 2016's Photo of the Year competition were sent on the photo commission of a lifetime. Soak in the tranquil waters and magnificent islands of Thailand through the lens of Christopher Roche...
"Having recently been to Mount Kailash in Tibet, Chechnya and Kurdistan, it was suggested that I might enjoy visiting Thailand’s northern hill tribes. But I had in mind a plan to visit the country’s famous shores instead and was given some great options. The challenge was to try and shoot something original, so I headed for the lesser-developed islands and focused my lens on seascapes and landscapes (particularly the fabulous limestone karst formations). I aimed to capture a sense of calm, leisure and rest – as that was what I was hoping for myself – and that is exactly what I got."
Feeling inspired by the incredible photos snapped up by 2016’s Wanderlust Photo of the Year winners? The four amateur photographers who win this year's competition will be sent on a photo commission of a lifetime to the temples, food streets and green fringes of Hong Kong and Macao.
