This magical shot of St Margaret’s Church in Lowestoft illuminated at night has won the Journal’s Picture of the Week.

It was taken by 46-year-old Wendy Beckham of Carlton Colville on her Canon D500 camera.

Ms Beckham said: “My parents had said how lovely St Margaret’s Church looked at night as they often take my 98-year-old grandad home as he lives nearby, and that I should go and take a look one evening.

“I am often on the look out for a nice picture as I am a member of Waveney Camera Club a new photography group in the area.”

As our winner, Ms Beckham 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.
