This stunning 'snowbrella' shot captured by Glenn Long during last week's visit by the Beast from the East has won the Journal's Picture of the Week.

It was taken on Friday, March 2, on the footpath that runs alongside Castleton Avenue in Carlton Colville by the 57-year-old on a Nikon D810.

Mr Long said: 'I've had a shot in mind for some while but with fog, as the snow came first it was the perfect chance to capture what I had in my head.

'I love the shot as it has a fun element whilst capturing the mood of the moment.

'The standard of previous winners is very high so it's nice to be chosen among so many photographers.'
