The August winner of our monthly schools photographic competition Water Works is 15-year-old Julian Scott from Dundee.

Describing his photograph entitled "Puddle" Julian said: "It was bucketing it down, but that didn't stop us going outdoors. In the picture you can see my friend Mat 'diving' into a puddle on a scooter. It just shows you: when its raining don't just sit indoors and watch TV, get out there and enjoy it (while it lasts)!"

Judging his entry this month's winner the judges said: "A dynamic image which captures both the movement of the scooter and the sense that rain can still be enjoyed, in the right circumstances"

All the August entries can be seen on our Facebook gallery page.
