It was the breathtaking aerial views of North Norfolk that caught a photographer with a coveted nod.
Diana Buzoianu’s aerial image of the Norfolk coast near Snettisham won the main title in the landscape category of the Societies of Photographers Photo Competition of the Year – beating out hundreds of entries from photographers around the world.

The 42-year-old London graphic designer, who has been developing her photography practice for the past five years, said: “Over the past two years I have traveled extensively on the Norfolk coast to observe, learn and document the life of seals. Grey.
“These trips revealed some beautiful local landscapes that I instantly fell in love with.”
