Welcome to June, some of our snappers have been busy over the bank holiday taking full advantage of our simply stunning skylines.  

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

There are a few new faces this week as word continues to get round about our weekly photography showcase page, don’t be shy to get in touch.  

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 went out to put something in to the recycle bin when I turned round to come back indoors, the sky caught my attention. So I went and grabbed my camera and drove four miles to Sutton Gault. - Credit: Paul Ellis

Over the weekend we took a trip to @southanglefarm. It is a beautiful farm with lots of animals you can feed.
