“Photo opportunities are limited by the lockdown, but there are still sights to be seen close to home,” said Mr Johnstone, who has been a keen photographer for more than a decade.

“I’m stuck in, but it was nice weather and I thought taking some photos in the garden would cheer me up. When you start looking around you’ll be surprised what you can see at home.”

As our winner, Ms Ashby 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.
