PICTURESQUE Somerset was looking its best beneath a beautiful blanket of white this week - but one Mercury reader had a better view of it than the rest of us.

Courtesy of owning both a top-notch camera and a light aircraft, Jeff Thomas was able to snap this terrific series of photographs.

Depicting some of the area's best-known landmarks - from Weston's Grand Pier, to Wells Cathedral and Brent Knoll - the pictures show a side of Somerset which is rarely seen.

Still instantly recognisable, these images offer an intriguing perspective on some familiar areas.

Plus, of course, the snowy weather conditions create a different picture too, making Jeff's pictures all the more interesting.

Jeff, who is part of the amateur Thomas Photographic Group, said: "We are based in Somerset, and are a group of enthusiastic photographers who mainly specialise in local interest pictures."
