AWASH with colour, this photograph of Hastings Pier has been awarded ‘judges’ favourite’ in the BBC Countryfile annual photography competition.
The stunning image was taken by Tim Clifton, of Old Harrow Road, St Leonards, earlier this year.
It shows the underside of the pier framing a particularly vivid sunset, complete with gulls, and two people enjoying the view.
Entitled Pier Sunset, the announcement was made earlier this month, and his photograph is one of 12 that appear in the BBC Countryfile calendar 2014.
The theme of the calendar is Our Living Landscape and money raised from the sale of the calendar will go to Children in Need.
