It’s mid-March and this week’s Photos of the Week features stunning sun-kissed Ely Cathedral backdrops, as well as a fluffy highland cow.  

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 beautiful snaps of our picturesque cathedral, stunning landscapes and some of the city’s furry friends.  

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.

Tom Juggins Ely Standard Photos of the Week

I recently got a drone for my birthday and I took it out to capture the sunrise. Unfortunately it was too cloudy but it was so amazing to see the city from a different angle. I've always loved the different views and perspectives you get with a drone, I can't wait to explore more places with it! - Credit: Tom Juggins / @tomjuggins_uk
