We were inundated (pun intended) with photos for our April theme of ‘Water’ – there were illuminated fountains, meandering rivers, oyster farms and loads of beautiful beaches. Here are the winners:

Isabelle Hanley, the Rambla del Mar

“This picture was taken in The Rambla del Mar in Barcelona. It’s a lovely spot by the port where locals and tourists alike can go and relax by the water and get away from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona!”

And three photos by Helen Peacock: La Rochelle; Destroyed pier, Saint-Jean de Monts; Fishing nets, Pornic, Nantes
