THIS summery snap is sure to add some warmth to another cold winter week.

It was taken by Vince Meadows, of Cotmer Road, Lowestoft, and has been chosen by our judges as The Journal's Picture of the Week.

Mr Meadows took the photograph in the gardens of Chatsworth House in Derbyshire in 2004, as he was impressed with the additions the gardeners had made to it.

'To come across this sunflower welcoming one to the garden was great fun and simply asked to be photographed,' Mr Meadows said.

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.
