Ely Standard Photos of the Week

Send us your photos on Instagram @ElyStandard using #ElyStandardPhotos or email them to along with a caption and name to credit. Ely Standard Photos - Credit: Ely Standard Photos 

With the world-famous Boat Race taking place in our beautiful city just days ago, it would be rude not to include some fabulous practise snaps.  

We’ve hand-picked some of our favourites from submissions via email and our official Instagram through direct message and our hashtag #ElyStandardPhotos.  

This week there are some amazing shots of our stunning city skyline from above using the latest and greatest in camera drone technology.   

Each week we select some of your pictures to show off to our readers both in our newspaper, on our website and of course across our social media.  

If you didn’t make the page this week, be sure to keep bombarding us with your best snaps to be in with a chance of having your work displayed.

I took this image on my Samsung phone in June 2020 as I was dog walking along Bishops Way between Ely and Little Downham. I've since had it printed as a panoramic. - Credit: Richard Elliott

Loved capturing the morning sun today. Was still pretty cold in the morning and my hands were frozen from using the drone but so happy with how the photo came out. - Credit: Tom Juggins / @tomjuggins_uk
