Charlie Waite's Landscape Photographer of the Year (LPOTY) has become somewhat of an institution in the UK.  The competition was founded in 2006 and has, since 2013, had a sister competition on the other side of the Atlantic.  The 2016 results have just been announced and, as can be expected, include some wonderful images.  Here is just a small selection of my personal favourites.
