This serene shot capturing the mirrored reflections of the sun setting over the North Bay on Oulton Broad was taken by 48-year-old Paul Thacker.

Mr Thacker, of St Margaret's Road, Lowestoft, used his Sony Cybershot to take the picture.

He said: 'I do a lot of fishing on and around The Broads. The photo was taken as I was packing up at the end of the day.

'I took three or four photos at different stages as the sun set but this was the best one - the colours are so vivid and the reflection of the water is almost a perfect mirror.'

As our winner, Mr Thacker 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.
