A Norfolk photographer's amazing capture of swans has been recognised at the Landscape Photographer of the Year 2021 competition.
Ruth Grindrod, 64, from Loddon, took a photo of swans at Hardley Flood on a September morning.
There were thousands of entries across the UK and she is one of 35 that has made it into the Landscape Photographer of the Year book.
There will also be an exhibition at London Bridge station from November 15 to January 9, 2022, followed by a nationwide tour.
Ruth, a self-taught photographer, said: "I came across this scene by turning a corner and finding the swans gliding through the water and mists.
"It was an ethereal scene.”
