Photographer Neal Grundy took home the grand prize in the Banff Mountain Photography Competition for his series Night Climbing. The Brighton, U.K.-based lensman set long exposures to capture climbers with headlamps scaling routes in the Central Weald area of southeast England.

“By producing these images at night, I sought to recreate the juxtaposition of natural and man-made forms,” he says. “While the images were exposed, climbers ascended the route using head torches, rendering the climb significantly more difficult.”
