This stunning sunset shot captured in Oulton Broad has been crowned The Journal's Picture of the Week.

It was taken by 78-year-old Sid Cole of Lowestoft the week before Christmas while visiting the Wherry Hotel for a meal.

Mr Cole said: 'When I parked I saw this stunning sunset over the Broads. I did not have my camera with me so used my phone, a Samsung Note 8. I like catching sunsets and really liked the effect captured by the phone.

'It is most pleasing to win given the quality of photos that are published each week.'

As our winner, Mr Cole receives a 10in x 8in framed version of his photo from Picture Studios, of London Road North, in Lowestoft town centre. Entries can be of any subject but they must be digital images.
