Some truly stunning snaps have been captured in and around Weston over the past few weeks.

Beautiful crisp mornings down by the seafront have been a photographers dream recently, and we have received lots of great submissions showing what a glorious town Weston is.

Knightstone, Marine Lake and the piers have proved to be perfect spots to get a picture of.

Photographer Peter Elston has also been busy.

He has taken his camera out into the garden and taken some colourful shots of flowers, butterflies and more.
