Take a look at the past week’s photos and if you would like to get involved and start seeing your shots appearing in the Mercury (in print/online), then join our community of local photographers at www.iwitness24.co.uk.

PHOTO CHALLENGE: We regularly set our readers a photo challenge to have a go at and our current theme is ‘Signs of Autumn’. We would like to see your best shots on the theme, taken from any location in and around Weston. To enter go to www.iwitness24.co.uk and upload your images to the Weston ‘Photo Challenge’ group and we’ll include them in an online gallery and possibly in print.

Weston is rightly renowned for its magnificent sunsets. This week we have seen some remarkably colourful 'scapes, including  warmly coloured condensation trails and an unusual sight of the seagulls flying out to their roosts, some on the sea and others, perhaps, on Steepholm.
