This week's winner

Brian Glover of Middlesbrough captured this image at the RNLI 175th anniversary celebrations last month. He explains: "This boat was being taken six miles across country from Whitby to Robin Hood's Bay to re-enact an 1881 rescue, when the lifeboat couldn't be launched from Whitby because the weather was so bad."
