Isle of Wight photographer, County Press contributor and wildlife watcher Sienna Anderson has been nominated for a prestigious national photography award.

Sienna caught the eye of the British Photography Awards when she submitted her photo entitled Freedom.

The image of a egret in flight is one of 20 in the competition's birdlife category, and needs votes from the public in order to take the top spot.

Sienna said: "This image took a week to capture. The Egret was in the same place every day and by persevering each day I finally managed to get this shot as the sun was low in the sky.

"Not technically perfect but a single shot.

"It’s one that I did well with before, and people kept telling me to enter it into the competition and so I did, literally last minute."
