AN APPEAL for readers to send us their photographs of our beautiful surroundings has produced a fantastic response, and some brilliant images.

Dozens of pictures taken either on people’s daily walks or simply from their back garden produced a host of pictures featuring everything from sunsets and landscapes to our beloved dogs and birds in the trees.

Here’s what we were sent. A selection of them also appeared in this week's paper if you haven't seen a copy.

We hope to run a similar feature in a few weeks so please keep emailing your pictures to

Don’t forget to include your name and address, and where your picture was taken.

Keep snapping!
