2012 Photo Travel Division (PTD) Image of the Year

Fuxin Level Crossing by Ian Silvester, EPSA

The 2012 pick for best overall image in the Photo Travel Division was Fuxin Level Crossing by Ian Silvester, EPSA, of the UK. The image was taken in 2000 when Ian went to China with friends to “escape the year 2000 hype.” Shot in Northeastern China, the polluted air of the mining town turned to rose in the evening light and the minus 25 degree Celsius temperature gave this image an exquisite reflective lighting effect. The tracks have turned to silver.
