This wonderful wildlife photo has earned the seal of approval and been crowned The Journal's Picture of the Week.

The shot, which captures a seal 'surfing' in the breaking waves at Horsey Beach, was taken by 50-year-old Richard Tomsett.

Mr Tomsett said: 'Although there was a lot of seals laying on the beach they don't make very dramatic photos so I concentrated on a particular seal which appeared to be surfing on the waves,

'It stood out for me because all you can see is the seal's face against what appears to be a bubble bath.'

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