This breathtaking landscape photograph showing the silhouettes of trees and houses in Halesworth against the setting sun was taken by Gary Leech.

The 26-year-old, who is from the town, used his Nikon D3300 to capture the beautiful moment.

He said: “I just put my camera down to get my tripod out and did not realise this is what I got.

“I am happy that I won because I have not been doing it that long.”

Mr Leech said his favourite aspect of the photograph was its accidental inception and was therefore a nice surprise to find later.

He said: “I like it as I did not realise I had taken it.”

As our winner, Mr Leech 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.
