Lowestoft Picture of the Week 2001

Lowestoft Picture of the Week 2001


This remarkable photograph of a seal pup was taken by 78-year-old Sid Cole, of Lowestoft.

He captured the image on his Canon 7D Mark II camera on Monday while standing on Lowestoft South Pier.

Mr Cole said: “I had been out early to see if I could get some sunrise shots.

“I went on to the pier to take photos along the coastline when I saw the pup on the sand below.

“As soon as I pointed the camera it looked up and seemed most interested in what I was doing.”

As our winner, Sid receives a 12in x 10in framed version of his photo from Picture Studios, of London Road North, Lowestoft.

Entries can be of any subject, but they must be digital images.
