A Clevedon photographer has won a prize for a stunning picture which showcases the beauty of Somerset.

Naomi Turley’s piece, called Poppies In Porlock, won Somerset Wildlife Trust’s competition.

Naomi, who grew up near Exmoor, said: “The sun illuminating the red of the poppies in contrast with the grey pebbles really caught my eye.

“I’m really chuffed to win this competition and I hope it encourages others to get out and about along our fantastic coastline.”

Other entries included photographs of wildlife, but it was Naomi’s work which impressed the judges most of all.

Somerset Wildlife Trust’s coastal wildlife project officer, Ben Bryant, said: “Porlock Bay is a beautiful, beautiful location and this photo captures the essence of it.

“The tops of the old groynes at Porlock Weir, the shingle ridge and Bossington Hill in the distance; the poppies provide a great burst of colour and with that backdrop I can see why it was the winner.”
