This exquisite photo of a lone tree silhouetted by an approaching storm was taken by 70-year-old Robert Mckenna.

Mr Mckenna, of Windsor Terrace, Kessingland, used his Canon 5D Mark II to take the picture.

He captured the moment as he walked home from Kessingland Marshes last week.

Mr Mckenna said: “I take a lot of wildlife photos and this was taken on one of my many walks.

“When I saw the approaching storm I thought it could make a good shot so took three or four photos.

He added: “I like the power and doom of the clouds - it made an interesting picture.”

As our winner, Mr Mckenna receives a 10in x 8in framed version of his photo from Picture Studios, of London Road North, in Lowestoft town centre. Entries can be of any subject but they must be digital images.
