A family of keen horse riders have shared stunning pictures of a lockdown sunrise taken off the Lowestoft coast.
On a clear Sunday morning, Jane Allard from Oulton Broad rode down to Corton beach with family and friends at 3.45am to catch the beautiful morning sunrise in June.
She said: “Nature became so much more appreciated during the height of lockdown when all we could really do was enjoy its company.
“We wanted to do something different with the kids to experience that while they’ve been unable to go to school.
“The horses were their lifeline during that period. My eldest daughter Sydney, who’d be competing in horse riding competitions with her sister Elsie if it wasn’t for lockdown, would go and muck out the stable whenever she got the chance.”
Ms Allard added: “I work in the NHS and my husband is a fireman. We’ve been on call all the way through the pandemic and it was nice to grab any moment to take a step back from that.”
