A BEAUTIFULLY bright photograph that proves spring has finally sprung has been named The Journal's Picture of the Week.
The seasonal shot of purple crocuses was taken by Mike Easter, of Breckland Way, Oulton Broad, when he was enjoying a walk earlier this week.
'The flowers on Normanston Park seem to be exceptionally splendid this year,' said a delighted Mr Easter, who previously won the competition in November 2008 when he took a photo of snow in the park.
Mr Easter will receive his 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 he will be in with a chance of claiming a 12in x 18in photo block worth �130.
