READER Wendy Hobbs submitted this extraordinary set of photos taken, she says, during the final days of September and into the first few days of October.

Wendy, from Benwick Road, Doddington, says they may not be up to some other photographer's standards "but I thought I'd send them in anyway."

We happen to believe they are of a very good standard, Wendy, and are delighted to publish them.
