    “The North East coast is our very own pot of gold” by Michelle K. Williams

    Michelle K. Williams, from New Hartley near Seaton Delaval, picked up the landscape award The Spirit of the North East Prize with her striking entry “The North East coast is our very own pot of gold”, depicting a wide, vivid rainbow set against the backdrop of moody coastal skies and equally colourful beach huts.

    Michelle sent this to us and is happy for this to be shared with residents, what a fantastic photograph! Well done Michelle!
