A WIDE range of different scenes, lighting and wildlife caught the eye of Gazette & Herald readers for this week’s round-up of photos.

With the various lockdowns and restrictions that have been in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19, many people have rediscovered the joy of being outside and enjoying nature by taking long walks.

Some have even discovered beauty spots right on their doorstep that they previously had no idea about.

Both Alan Avery and Jenny Stead discovered a blanket of bluebells during a walk in their local area. George Tremain snapped a group of rowers enjoying themselves on the River Ouse, in York.

Rather than exploring our beautiful landscape further afield, some readers have stayed closer to home.

Ric Blenkharn has submitted an iconic photo of The Shambles, in Malton. Pete Lamb spotted the Atlas Fountain in the grounds of Castle Howard.

The other readers featured this week have had their focus drawn to the changing landscapes around us.

Andy Robinson, Jane Paterson and Nick Fletcher have captured the changing flora and fauna in the sunshine. And finally, Sharon Marwood spotted a feathered friend in her garden.

We enjoy showcasing your 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 gazette@gazetteherald.co.uk.

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