British Life Photography awards - Summer Solstice at Stonehenge

A picture of people photographing the summer solstice at Stonehenge is the winner of this year's British Life Photography award. The image, titled Past Present, was taken by Elena Marimon Munoz and triumphed in the Brits on Holiday category. The competition, which aims to showcase "the essence and spirit of British life", was open to both amateur and professional photographers.

"By the time the sun started to rise above the stones, hundreds, if not thousands of people, had gathered inside the stone circle, phones and cameras up in the air ready to record the magical moment," says Marimon Munoz. "In the picture, I wanted to capture the mixture of ancient history and modern technology, fused together - past and present."
