An amateur photographer has seen her snap of a rushing river turned into a billboard in Orpington by Highland Spring water.

Susan Potter, of Orpington, won the prize as part of a nationwide competition to capture moments that leave you ‘full of the joys’.

More than 2,000 entries were submitted to Highland Spring, who ran the competition alongside the Woodland Trust, but it was Susan’s snap of Watersmeet, in Devon, that was selected by a panel of experts as the winner.

Thanks to her photography skills, Susan won a £2,500 luxury woodland retreat for up to 10 people - as well as seeing her work displayed in Windsor Drive.

Andrea McQuaid, head of brand marketing at Highland Spring, said: “The Woodland Wonder campaign was all about encouraging people to get out and enjoy Britain’s naturally beautiful woodland areas and the volume of entries received showed us that they took that to heart.

“Susan took a stunning photograph in a powerful setting which the judges felt really captured the essence of the competition.”
