The picture was captured by Peter Salmon from Carlton Colville on Friday, August 30.

The amateur photographer said he secured the shot on his Canon 600D.

He also used a 20 second exposure and a tripod while out shooting the night's sky.

Mr Salmon said: "It was taken in Oulton Broad on Friday night and shows the nice reflections of the lights in the water.
