Stunning photographs of Suffolk’s most southerly point attracted big interest on-line with around 800 people voting for their favourite.

The images were entered for this year’s Landguard Photography Competition, which aims to highlight the peninsula’s many attractions, including its nature reserve, Landguard Fort and Felixstowe Museum, and the viewing area for the Port of Felixstowe.

The 12 photos with the most votes were examined by a panel of four independent judges, who chose as this year’s overall winner Thomas Harvey – the first person to win the competition twice in a row – for his shot of the sea washing onto the shore under a stormy sky by the jetty.

A spokesman for the competition organisers, the Landguard Partnership, said the themes were Black and White, Abstract and Weather, and “the overall quality and variety of photographs this year was outstanding”.
