IT MIGHT be turning cold and dark outside, but that hasn’t stopped readers capturing on camera the last days of a golden autumn right here in Ryedale.

We’ve been sent dozens of pictures of this year’s autumn spectacular as you’ve explored the beautiful countryside around us, or even closer to home.

Here’s just a selection of what we’ve received. More will feature in future editions so keep your eyes peeled.

We love to see our readers’ photographs. It could be a seasonal landscape or simply your favourite view of our beautiful surroundings.

If you would like to submit a picture, email it to

Please include details of where it was taken, your name, address and phone number.

Keep snapping!
