A stunning picture of a lighthouse in North Wales has won a photography competition for images captured by a drone.
James Farley, from Chester, took a picture of the structure on the Point of Ayr, off the coast of Talacre, near Rhyl.
His entry beat out 1,200 other images to win 400ft Britain.
Photographs had to be taken at less than 400 feet, the limit that at which drones can be flown in the UK.
Also pictured was Lulworth Cove, on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage coastline in Dorset, photographed by James Loveridge.
James Farley also entered a photograph of Loch Schiel, just 12 miles away from Fort William.
Judge Alan Proto of Phantom Flight School said: ‘One thing I am consciously looking for is a point of view that simply could not have been achieved except with a drone.
‘This is perfectly captured by the shot of the Point of Ayr, it’s a wonderful image.’
