PUBLISHED: 12:00 22 October 2016
This beautiful seascape of the Somerset coast, was named best image at a pair of photographic clubs’ competition.
The Woodford and Wanstead Photographic Society (WWPS) battled with the Chingford Photographic Society, on Monday in Wanstead Place, Wanstead.
Despite Chingford winning, WWPS member Arnie Gobel’s picture of the SS Nornen was named image of the night.
Arnie, 57, of Waltham Road, Woodford Bridge said: “At low tide, the bones of a long dead ship stick out of the sands which was wrecked in 1897.
“To capture this image with impact I needed three elements of the right conditions – light, weather and tide level.
“In this instance, all three were just what I hoped for.”
Sue Dobson of the East Anglia Federation of Photographic Societies was the judge.
She said: “It was very difficult. as there were some excellent images and the general standard was very high.”
