Lowestoft Picture of the Week January 27 - Southwold Pier by Richard Gowen


This fantastic photograph of Southwold Pier was taken by Richard Gowen from Lowestoft.

The 36-year-old captured the image on Southwold beach using his Canon 5d Mark II camera on January 21.

He said: “I had to wait around in the freezing cold and bitter wind for the sun to come up and had decided to climb carefully onto the rocks to get the shot I wanted.

“It’s always great to win as there are always some great winners. I chose this image to enter as I really liked the colours in the rocks and the sky.”

As our winner, Mr Gowen 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.
