This incredible action shot capturing the large branch of a polar tree falling to the ground after being cut with a chainsaw was taken by 72-year-old Janet Tillet in Lowestoft.

Ms Tillet used her Lumix TZ100 to take the fabulous picture after noting the tree technician carrying out work on overgrown trees near the bottom of her garden.

She said: “I was taking photos all day and just timed this one right - it was the last cut of the tree.

“I just love this photo - it looks like the branch is flying.”

She added: “I am so pleased to win Picture of the Week - thank you so much.”

As our winner, Ms Tillet 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.
