A photograph of a fishing boat as it navigated a loch has won first prize in a new Scottish landscape photography competition.

Hugh Nicol, from Appin, took the image called The Audrey, Loch Creran, while on an evening cycle ride.

The picture won the Jolomo Colours of Scotland Photography Competition, which was launched last year by Scottish artist John Lowrie Morrison.

Mr Morrison, who is known as Jolomo, said hundreds of images were entered for the prize and revealed the quality was so good it “was difficult to judge”.

The images included landscapes from across the country and included many taken on people’s mobile phones.

The runners-up photographs included images taken in the Western Isles.

Mairead Maclennan, from North Uist, was a runner-up with her picture Old School, Loch Portain, North Uist.

The other runners-up were Susanne Wilson, of East Kilbride, for Luskentyre Beach, Harris and Raymond Hosie, from Campbeltown for The Gauldrons, Machrihanish.
