Last week we set our readers the challenge to send us their ‘up close’ photos taken anywhere in East Devon. Here is a gallery of all the entries that were submitted - our favourite shot has to be a close up of some little fungi amongst bamboo by James Cook from Cranbrook, entitled ‘Fairy Chairs’.

Have a browse through our gallery of great entries and if you would like to get involved then why not join our community of local photographers at www.iwitness24.co.uk.

Our current photo challenge is ‘Hallowe’en’. Simply send us your spooky pictures taken in East Devon by uploading them to the iwitness24 ‘East Devon Photo Challenge’ group and we’ll put a gallery together next week.
