Photographers have captured the stunning landscape, wildlife and structures of Suffolk’s most southerly point in an annual event.
The photographic competition attracted 68 entries over three categories – Macro, Wildlife and Photographs at Landguard, Felixstowe, that make you go ‘Wow’ – and more than 1,500 people, a record, voted on the Discover Landguard website for their favourite.
The top four photographs in each category were then put before a panel of judges, who then selected the overall Judges Choice winner – this year going to Philip J Hill, whose picture was taken on the Landguard Nature Reserve for the Wildlife category and wins him £50 to put towards photographic equipment.
Stephen Rampley, Landguard marketing and events co-ordinator said the competition had “attracted a fabulous variety of photographs which capture the unique attractions and atmosphere of the Landguard peninsula”.
He added: “ We would like to congratulate Philip on his winning entry, and thank everyone who took the time to enter their great photographs.”
