We love to receive your photos of the local area, to share with our readers.
You decide what to photograph - whether it's a special occasion, a local landmark, or just something or somewhere that has caught your eye.
You can see previous galleries here.
If you would like to send us a photo or photos, please contact us by email. Or, you can post them on our Facebook page and we will pick them up from there. Photos must be a minimum of 500 pixels wide.
When a new photo is added, it will be placed at the top of the article, which will be boosted so that it appears in 'Latest' on the homepage. That way you will know there is at least one new photo in a gallery, possibly more, to delight your eyes.

A few left the designated paths and caused disturbance, but Mr David Eisner kept to the permitted area and managed to capture this beautiful image of a short-eared owl carrying its lunch. Poor mouse, eyes wide open, such is the circle of life. Beautiful photograph, thanks to Pete Leary for sending this in, on Mr Eisner's behalf.
