The winners of a county-wide competition which challenged keen photographers to capture the beauty of our region have been presented with their prizes.

Launched at the start of the summer holidays, the Norfolk Trails' Treasure photographic competition invited people to submit pictures which encapsulated what they loved about the Norfolk Trails.

Six images were chosen as finalists in October, showing picturesque scenes on Hunstanton coastal path, Redgrave Fen and Cromer Pier.

But a stunning picture of Thornham Quay taken by Gary Pearson was hailed winner of the competition.

Yesterday, the 47-year-old – who also scooped second place with his picture of Burnham Overy Staithe – received his £100 cash prize and canvas print of the winning photo from Brian Hannah, chairman of Norfolk County Council.
