A image capturing the dark night-time beauty of a north Norfolk village has come first in a photo competition.
Rob Henry, 32, was out for a winter walk near his home in Upper Sheringham in January when he photographed the snowy scene in the village.
He entered the image into the Allied Westminster Wonderful British Villages photo competition, and was selected as the winner by a panel of judges.
Mr Henry works for a local council and moved to the village in 2013 with his wife Samantha, 29, who gave birth to their first son Wilfred on July 10.
He said he took up photography four years ago, and fell in love with the art. “I think living where we do with the beautiful landscape I started to enjoy taking pictures of what I saw,” he said.
Speaking about his photography, he said: “It is just a hobby at the moment but who knows about the future. I have already had requests for weddings.”
Mr Henry was awarded a £300 prize for Upper Sheringham village hall and an iPad Air for himself.
