A sandstorm rages over Kuwait, a woman shops in a derelict supermarket in Fukushima, and in Lagos women weave hair on the lagoon. These images are some of the best on the shortlist for the 2015 Ciwem Atkins Environmental Photographer of the year. Many are deceptively beautiful – look more closely and they reveal the powerful impact both humans and nature have on our landscape

Glacier 1987 by Simon Norfolk, Mount Kenya.

The flame line shows the Lewis Glacier’s location in 1987. The glacier has since receded by about 120 metres. In 1987 the Curling Pond seen in the image was 15m higher than seen presently and it had a tall wall of ice – the glacier’s snout – forming its back wall. The rounded peak is Point Thomson.
