A drop in temperatures has not meant a drop in quality of photographs taken by the iwitness24 community.

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.
