It’s Christmassssss! We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Readers’ Gallery this year. Hundreds and hundreds of images have been submitted and published, bringing joy to photographers and readers alike.

Animals feature heavily in this week’s Readers’ Gallery and we kick off with that incredible sunrise from Wednesday morning!

This is most likely the last gallery of 2021, depending on the number of submissions over the festive period.

If you have captured an Island moment in a photograph and think that others would like to see it, then send it in to be featured on our Island Echo Readers' Gallery.

Please supply your name and a brief description of where and when the photograph was taken, or perhaps a funny caption.

The deadline is Thursday at 09:00 and photos will be published on the Island Echo website during the later part of Friday, normally early evening. If you miss the cut off time, then don't fear, we will just add them into the following week!
