WINTER has arrived and Weston-super-Mare’s seafront has been battered by storms, with high winds creating large waves above the sea wall.

Timmay Curtis braved the wind and rain to take a series of shots of the storm, capturing waves crashing onto the promenade.

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.
