The man who snapped this image of a pier covered in a cloud of mist has been named winner of Woodford & Wanstead Photographic Society’s monthly competition.

Chris Saunders was awarded first place by judge Arnie Gobel for his photo of the old pier at North Berwick harbour, Scotland.

Mr Saunders said: “I originally went to North Berwick to photograph the tidal pool there, however it was bank holiday Monday and the weather was fabulous so the tidal pool was full with holidaymakers.

“Nobody was interested in the old pier which was partly submerged at that time so I took some pictures of that instead.

“I’m very pleased to have won especially because the entries to the monthly competitions seem to be getting better and better.”
