Translink has announced the winner of a passenger competition.

Commuters were asked to submit images of plants and wildlife they encounter on their journey.

Elena Aceves-Cully, a daily passenger on the Larne line, submitted the winning picture of a favourite spot for seals to lie in the morning or early evening.

Elena said: “The journey between Larne and Carrick on the train is one of the most beautiful I have ever experienced, with amazing sea and Larne Lough views. There is plenty of wildlife in sight.

“It is always the same rock being used, the conditions must be right: low tide, calm sea and even better if sunny. I have seen black and grey seals using it so it is not just the one seal and it is used all year.”
