Winner: 'Tall Ships in Falmouth': Nick Gill, Helston, Cornwall

Tall Ships in Falmouth

"Falmouth looks forward to welcome the Tall Ships back from 19th - 22nd August."


Runner-up: 'You're on my patch': Colin Wright, Kent

You're on my patch, seagull

"This is hilarious (but not unexpected). I was runner-up twice before with seagulls, one in Holland and one in New Zealand. This one was in Bridlington last August."


Runner-up: 'Blue Iris on Loch Nairn': John Lang, Aberdeen


"With 2020 being such a difficult year for so many people we feel extremely lucky to have been able to get away in the summer to some of the most beautiful anchorages on the West Coast of Scotland!"


Runner-up: 'Faaborg' David Rivett, Hampshire


"So pleased I entered, thank you for pushing me a bit. I love this photograph. It was taken from our cockpit when we were moored in Faborg harbour Denmark. I thought it showed so well that although fathers might love to share their passion with their sons, sadly it is not always so easy. The boy seems totally absorbed with whatever is pulsing through the headphones despite being on a gorgeous classic boat in one of the prettiest harbours in Denmark on a perfect summer afternoon. Maybe later............"
