It isn’t happening if there isn’t a great picture @DriveEurope. A look back at 2015 through the ten best photos.
The launch photos of the Land Rover Discovery Sport from Iceland were spectacular, particularly this one from Skogafoss waterfall.
Skjarvelandet along the Havoysund Road in Finnmark, northern-most Norway, was named the country’s Most Beautiful Road in January.
A great year for Scotland’s North Coast 500. A new website for the 500 mile scenic round trip from Inverness in March, and star of EVO magazine’s amazing Car of the Year 2015 film in December.
This wasn’t taken in 2015 but it was the year we discovered photographer David Douglas Duncan – friend of Picasso and Mercedes boss Rudolf Uhlenhaut – and his alpine road trips with a ‘secret’ SLS.
Red Bull daredevil Felix Baumgartner and Auto & Technik Museum boss Hermann Layher relax for a moment on April’s gruelling Paris-Biarritz Tour Auto, in a 1955 Mercedes-Bez 300 SL.
A close shave for a group of three British sports cars which passed an off-duty policeman at speed on the way down to Spain in May. The subsequent police helicopter took some great shots but didn’t have any recording equipment, so they got off scot-free for lack of evidence.
An unexpected talent for photography from a member of @KentPoliceRoads, one of the few highlights of a miserable July when trucks were stacked in their thousands on both sides of the Channel during a port blockade, exacerbated by repeated migrant intrusions in Calais.
The webcams on Iceland’s national road agency website Road.is look out on some great landscape, like this at Eldhraun, almost on the country’s southern-most tip.
A migrant threatens a truck driver with a lump hammer in Calais in December. A shocking reminder, as strike action is threatened again, that none of the issues which caused such problems in the summer are done and dusted just yet. Photo via Les Calaisiens en Colere/Facebook.
In the year we drove to Odessa in Ukraine, and Paris, the Alps and Pyrenees, our best photo is of cloud breaks on the magnificent 2645m (8678ft) Col du Galibier, in the French Alps in September.
