Harbour Master Wendy Stowe said:
The natural world has provided a wonderful escape during this tough year, and it’s been lovely to see the tranquillity and beauty of the Beaulieu River reflected in this year’s entries. We look forward to welcoming visitors back to enjoy the peace of the river once restrictions lift.
The annual competition is open to all amateur photographers who are inspired by the unique beauty of the Beaulieu River. Entries for the 2021 competition are now open. For more information visit www.beaulieuriver.co.uk/photo-competition
