Some of the readers pictures from 2017

Readers of the Burton Mail have been bowling us over all year with their stunning pictures.

You have been out and about snapping photographs in the Burton, South Derbyshire and North West Leicestershire area - and the results have been breath taking.

Here we feature a selection of some of the best photos submitted to the Burton Mail by readers this year.

This photograph of one of the many deers at Calke Abbey. It was taken by Shaun Johnson using his Canon EOS 5 DSR

Selected from each month throughout 2017, the pictures show a variety of different subjects, from a stag dangling in a fern crown to a glowing field of sunflowers, and an aerial view of the Pirelli Stadium to winding road through autumn leaves.

Readers pictures are featured in the Burton Mail in most editions of the paper and these submissions showcase some of the top amateur photography being practised in the region.

We send our thanks to all those who have submitted photos this year and hope for another wonderful selection in 2018, and of course congratulations to the 24 photographers who have had their snaps chosen for this gallery.
