This beautiful photograph capturing the beauty of Britain’s coastline has been crowned The Journal’s Picture of the Week.

The shot was taken by 55-year-old Douglas Anderton from Carlton Colville during a trip to the southeast coast, near Eastbourne.

Mr Anderton, who used his Canon 600D, said the photo came about as an attempt to recreate one of the screensavers on his computer.

He said: “I wanted to go down and see it for myself and take a photo.

“It’s a classic icon of the British Isles, especially during the war, and I wanted to get a picture.

Mr Anderton added: “It’s fantastic to win.”

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