The last of the autumn leaves were also shown off on Weston’s iwitness site this week, with Ben Nicholas submitting a beautiful image of Sandford Church.

Shaun Rowlands took a walk through a colourful pathway of leaves with two dogs posing made a beautiful photograph.

Robin Ballard and Shaun Rowlands both sent in pictures of birds to the site this week.

Regular contributor Terry Kelly submitted a beautiful picture of a blood red sunset across Weston’s beach.
