If you have never visited Norfolk, in the east of England, it’s time to bump it up your travel wish-list.
The county is home to The Norfolk Broads, countless beautiful beaches, pretty market towns and the vibrant regional capital, Norwich city.
During the summer I posted about the Norfolk Trails competition for photographers to get out and about and capture the beauty of the county and showcase what they really treasure about Norfolk. The competition was created to encourage both locals and visitors to explore the Norfolk Trails network which includes long and short walks, circular routes, cycle paths and bridle ways, amounting to more than 1200 miles.
After hundreds of beautiful submissions the judges have selected their six favourite photos of the county trails – from Paston way on the coast to Angles Way on the Norfolk\Suffolk border. Each entrant was able to submit five photos.
All photo entries were presented to the judges anonymously, which resulted in two of the entrants having two of their entries chosen for the final.
The judges were Brian Hannah, Chairman of Norfolk County Council, Nigel Pickover, Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News Editor and David Yates, Norfolk County Council’s Senior Trails Officer.
All entries have been added to the official Norfolk Trails Treasure Flickr Group for everyone to enjoy, while the four finalists will now see their images go to a public vote for a chance to win prizes including the winning photo being made into a canvas print.
This post features the six finalist entries, to vote for your favourite go to www.NorfolkTrails.co.uk. First, second and third place will be awarded on Tuesday 14th october.
- If you haven’t visited Norfolk, it’s well worth a trip. If you have visited and have a favourite place, please let me know where it is and what you recommend.
