Picture of the Week: April 30, 2010

IT seems everybody knows somebody who was affected by the Icelandic volcanic ash chaos, and now it's even had an impact on The Journal's Picture of the Week.

IT seems everybody knows somebody who was affected by the Icelandic volcanic ash chaos, and now it's even had an impact on The Journal's Picture of the Week.

This week's delightful winning photograph was taken by Jayne Dennington, of Willow Road, Pakefield, as she waited for her daughter Donna to return from America, after being stranded in Orlando.

Unable to sleep on the morning of Donna's return, she captured this serene sunrise from Pakefield Beach last Wednesday at 4.45am.

'I had heard that the sunrise would be pretty due to the ash, and although I have lived in Pakefield nearly all my life, I have never actually seen the sunrise on the beach, so I thought I'd wander down there to see for myself. I'm very glad that I did,' she said.

Jayne will receive her photograph in a 12in x 10in frame, mounted and inscribed, worth more than �60, from Picture Studios, of London Road North, Lowestoft. The winning picture will also go forward to a six-monthly winners' final contest, when she will be in with a chance of claiming a 12in x 18in photo block worth �130.

We are accepting images for next week's competition. They can be of any subject, whether they are entertaining snapshots, luscious landscapes or a close-up brush with nature. They must be taken by amateur photographers, and we'd prefer digital pictures. We do accept prints, but they need to be copies as we cannot guarantee their return. Send your picture with your name, address and contact details to richard.wood@archant.co.uk marking your email Journal Photo Competition. Prints can be sent to Picture of the Week, The Journal, 147 London Road North, Lowestoft, NR32 1NB.
