ALTHOUGH the nights are drawing in and the temperatures are falling, no-one could have failed to notice the beautiful autumnal colours emblazoned across Ryedale.

Bright crisp mornings bring out every colour from burnished bronzes and bright yellows to vibrant greens and brilliant burgundy.

There’s no denying the trees and hedgerows have put on a truly eye-catching show and it’s one that Gazette & Herald readers haven’t failed to notice either.

You’ve been out and about capturing the dramatic change of season on your camera. Here’s seven photos we have received from readers in recent weeks.

They reflect every aspect of our surroundings from the iconic steam train travelling along the North Yorkshire Moors Railway to the fruits of this year’s labour at Helmsley Walled Garden and our stunning landmarks such as Kirkham Abbey.

Every week we feature one for your pictures on our letters page. Would you like to submit one for consideration? You can email them to Please include details of where it was taken, your name and address.
