An idyllic landscape has proved to be picture perfect for one keen amateur photographer.

This stunning shot was captured by Shay Jordan during a holiday to Bangkok in Thailand – and it has secured the talented teenager a third win in our popular Picture of the Week competition.

The delighted Benjamin Britten High School student said: 'This picture was taken on my trip to Bangkok last April, during the Thai festival of Songkran, and I visited Lumpini Park to see the Thai people practising Tai Chi there.

'Being a keen martial artist, and a second degree black belt in Kuk Sool Won, I was looking forward to seeing this. However, we didn't see any Tai Chi when we were there because the park had been taken over by peaceful anti-government protesters, who can be seen very faintly below the trees in the photo.'

As our winner, Shay receives a 12in x 10in framed version of his photo, worth more than £60, from Picture Studios, of London Road North, Lowestoft.
