Every week we set our readers a photo challenge to have a go at and for our last challenge we were looking for pictures of ‘Countryside’ from around East Devon.

We saw some brilliant entries such as a wonderful misty sunrise scene near Honiton by Jason Sedgemore and a great series of shots by Barbara Mellor from her walks around Woodbury Common. Our favourite shot was a sunset at Woodbury Common captured by Kim Pannell, while out for a walk with her partner, Keith Williams.

All of these images were sent in to us through our photo-sharing website, iwitness24 and each week we put together a gallery of readers’ photos for you to enjoy. If you would like to get involved then why not join our community of local photographers at www.iwitness24.co.uk.

PHOTO CHALLENGE: Our new photo-challenge is ‘Abstracts’ and if you would like to enter then simply upload your shots to the iwitness24 East Devon photo-challenge group.
