This exquisite photo of a rotting ship at Oulton Broad Yacht Station was taken by 66-year-old Mike Pearson.

Mr Pearson, of Kingswood Avenue, Carlton Colville, used his Nikon 7100 to capture the shot.

He said: “This was actually taken two years ago, you can’t see the boat anymore as they have put up fencing.

“Like all amateur photographers I walk around with a camera hoping to find unusual pictures.

“I think it captures a little bit of the old Lowestoft, particularly my past down there.

“I’ve lived here all my life and have always walked past the boat as that was the route I used.”

As our winner, Mr Pearson 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.
