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

Describing his entry Julian said: "It was a rainy day and I was out in the garden taking some pictures. After taking this one, I noticed the houses reflected in the raindrop. It reminded me of our everyday use of water, and how it effects our environment."

Judging his entry the winner the judges added: "An interesting composition of water in the urban environment, with clever use of the reflection of the houses."

The judges also highly commended the entry from Maria Koleva of St Joseph’s Academy, Kilmarnock saying: "Clever use of colours to enhance an image portraying flooding within a natural environment."
