WINNER: Darin Goodsell (Instagram @darinpictures) - Hayling Island Beach Huts

"Beach huts make great summery images, and Hayling Island has plenty of them. I waited for a break in the clouds to catch the sun rays against the huts in this picture as a day at the beach drew to a close."

Plan a visit to Hayling Island.

Runners Up

Geoff Smith - Bucklers Hard

"The setting of Bucklers Hard is wonderful at dusk. I came here a couple of years ago for the first time without my camera and made a promise to myself that I would return again with my camera. I wasn’t disappointed.The reflections symbolise the tranquility that can be found here on a cool summer evening."

Plan a visit to Bucklers Hard.

Explore the South Downs National Park.

Suzy Shires (Instagram @windependents) - River Test at Houghton

"This was taken in the River Tess at Houghton near Stockbridge. The girls were happy paddling and enjoying their ‘fishing’ discoveries. With the Summer weather being ‘iffy’ to say the least, this became our favourite ‘Summer Moment’ for all. It was brilliant fun!"

Explore the Test Valley.

Ant Lowe - Hatchet Pond, New Forest National Park

"Hatchet Pond near Beaulieu in the New Forest. Taken an hour before sunset" 

Discover the New Forest National Park.

Lee Hargreaves - Lymington

"I was on the first ferry of the day, to the Isle of Wight, with my cycling friend. We'd cycled overnight, through the New Forest, to get there and were looking forward to more idyllic Hampshire cycling on the Island. The sun rose on a stunning July day as the ferry departed."

Plan a visit to Lymington.
