This breathtaking photograph of the moody skies as the sun sets at Carlton Marsh was taken by Glenn Long, of Carlton Colville, Lowestoft. He captured the image on his Nikon camera while visiting the popular wildlife spot in January.

Mr Long, 56, said: 'I anticipated the sunset and already had the location in mind, I simply turned up and waited for the sun to set.

'I'm very pleased to have had a picture selected as I've seen other winning entries and know the standard is very high.

'I'm very pleased with the composition and colours of the image, I love the way the reeds and dyke draw you into the scene.'

As our winner, Mr Long receives a 12in x 10in framed version of his photo from Picture Studios, of London Road North, Lowestoft. Entries can be of any subject but they must be digital images. Email pictures to .
