    Wildlife Photographer of the Year winners announced



    Snowstorm leopard by Steve Winter/Wildlife Photographer of the Year


    Ten long months spent stalking the rare and elusive snow leopard in temperatures as low as -40ºC paid off for a dogged photographer.

    An image of the Himalayan big cat, silhouetted against a black sky filled with snow, won the aptly-named Steve Winter the Wildlife Photographer of the Year award.

    The picture captures the majestic beauty of the endangered leopard and the bitingly cold and hostile high-altitude landscape it manages to survive in.

    Troublemaker by Stefano Unterthiner/Wildlife Photographer of the Year

    Camping out on a mountainside in Hemis High Altitude National Park in northern India he used 14 remote-controlled cameras as part of his quest to find the secretive snow leopard.

    "As the weather turned warmer, I moved the camera traps to higher altitudes along the trail. I put a camera in this location because it was where three trails converge," said Steve from Hoboken in New York.

    He checked the camera in May 2007 more in hope than expectation to find the winning image.

    Battle of the Bears by Tom Mills/Wildlife Photographer of the Year


    "I was thrilled to have finally captured the shot I had dreamed of - a wild snow leopard in its true element," he said.

    An estimated 3,500-7,000 snow leopards (Uncia uncia) survive in the high-altitude regions of the Himalayas and mountains of Central Asia. A fearsome predator, it has suffered a steep decline in numbers because of poaching for its highly-prized skin and body parts.
