FOR this week’s centrespread, we are highlighting the photographic skills of some of our readers. They have been out and about capturing the sights and sounds of our beautiful surroundings.

Daniel Medelete, Pete Lamb and Jack Fletcher have focused their attentions on the wild side of North Yorkshire with pictures of a dandelion, a butterfly on forget-me-not and a deer and rabbit.
