These dramatic images reveal an abandoned car almost completely submerged in flood water near Hadleigh.
Flooding has affected areas of the county tin recent days, causing disruption and travel chaos with a number of motorists having to be rescued from stranded vehicles.
James Metcalfe, an amateur photographer from Hadleigh, went out on Saturday, December 21, in search of striking shots of high water.
In Rectory Lane, Whatfield, he found this vehicle - believed to be a Jaguar 4x4 - stranded just below the 6ft measure where the ford crosses the road.
Mr Metcalfe, a council auditor, said he was "surprised" at what he discovered.

Four fire appliances attended the scene and the road was closed.
