This year’s winning entry, entitled Messing About on the River, builds on two previous successes with her atmospheric sunset shots.

She will be presented with her £200 prize at Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour and this year’s winning entry will be featured in the 2024 Beaulieu River Tide Times & Information booklet.

Maggie also entered Autumn Colours in the latest competition, which was placed as one of the runner-up entries alongside David Miller’s stormy sky sailing picture and Sarah Webber’s photograph of a swan making ripples in the water.

The annual competition is open to all amateur photographers who are inspired to capture the unique quality of one of the few privately owned tidal rivers in Britain. It is open to locals as well as visitors to the picturesque harbourside village of Buckler’s Hard.

Private custodianship of the Montagu family has protected the Beaulieu River for over four centuries and Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour was recently highly commended for its sustainability practices in the first ever Sustainable Marina Awards by The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA). Encouraging visitors’ environmentally-friendly behaviour and raising the awareness of good practice is an essential part of keeping it a special place for the future.
