This week’s winner of See it, Snap it, Send it is John Goldsmith, from Bury St Edmunds, with this night-time picture of the St Edmund sculpture on the Parkway/Risbygate roundabout.

John said: “It was taken on the rainy night of 5th October, using a ‘Keep Left’ bollard as a tripod.

“I used a Fuji S7000 bridge camera, set for a long exposure and auto aperture.”

John wins the chance to have his picture made into an A3 canvas print, courtesy of Denny Bros’ Sprint Print service in King’s Road, Bury. Alternatively, he can choose to have five smaller glossy prints.

Cheryl Dorling, from Bury St Edmunds, sent in this picture of her grandson Kai, three, with a young kestrel which settled on a nearby tree stump. “It was a lovely little thing,” said Cheryl.

Mike Willsher, from Bury St Edmunds, used the camera on his smartphone to capture this moment, ‘a first time meet and greet’.
