It’s been quite chilly recently but that hasn’t stopped some of our readers from venturing outside to take some super winter-themed photos around Weston. Last week we set our readers the challenge of capturing on camera winter scenes in and around the town and we’ve put together a gallery of submissions received.

Each week we create a gallery of pictures shared by Mercury readers and if you would like to get involved then why not join our community of local photographers at www.iwitness24.co.uk.

Photo Challenge: This week’s theme is ‘Winter Sports’ and we are looking for your sport pictures taken anywhere in Weston over winter time. To enter simply send us your pictures by uploading them to the Weston iwitness24 ‘Photo Challenge’ category and we’ll include them in our gallery next week.

Two people that cared about tourism in the town - only too pleased to help. There was not a bus timetable, theatre time or how to get there they did not know. In fact there was nothing they could not answer. Sorry that short sighted people closed our showcase to tourism and the town.

Yesterday in the high winds, high tide, and freezing weather, these men  were freezing in the shelters they call  home. I spoke with them and felt really sorry for them, I never have given money to the homeless before, and have been very judgemental saying there must be a reason or they did something wrong. Yesterday I felt they were treated worse than a prisoner. In jail they would have three meals a day and a dry bed. Surely there must be help for the homeless to spare them from this?

The sun going down generates a beautiful golden glow, throwing the old church into silhouette. The sunset only lasted for a couple of minutes, just long enough to capture this image.

Couldn't believe this image of a January afternoon in Weston-super-Mare, looks like an infinity pool somewhere exotic and the lake looks as good as an Italian lake mid-summer.
