Photographer Gary Pearson, from Dersingham, walked away with both the first and second places in the Norfolk Trails Treasure photo competition.

His stunning picture of Thornham Quay was chosen by the judges as the winner and was announced on Tuesday .

His photograph of Burnham Overy Staithe was selected as the runner-up.

The competition was launched at the beginning of the summer holidays and asked photographers to submit up to five pictures that capture what it is that they treasure most when out and about exploring the Norfolk Trails, which comprises 1,200 miles of walking, cycling and riding routes across the county.

Judges had to narrow their favourite pictures down to six finalists to go through to the last stage of the competition where the public cast their votes for their favourite images.

As the winner, Gary will receive a £100 Cotswolds Outdoor voucher and his photo as a canvas print. And for his prize for coming second, he will receive another Cotswolds voucher for £75.
