Wildlife images were among the standouts the final digital competition of North Norfolk Photographic Society's season. 

Jim Hartje, from Peterborough, judged the contest via Zoom, and 12 images were given awards out of 66 entries. 

Val Walker, from the club, said: "As this was an open competition, and not on a theme, there was a wide range of subject matter. There was a high standard of images, particularly wildlife."

Gold awards went to Robbie Spencer for his image Sunrise at the Mill and Val Walker for Wave Spirit. Ms Walker also obtained a Silver for Broad-bodied Chaser.
