Each week we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week the theme is "Kenya" and we begin with an image taken by Tom Paveley, who said: "I'm not sure who was more surprised - us or the elephants. This cycle safari near Nanyuki took us closer than we had expected."

Gavin Hogg: "I was in the Milgis Valley, northern Kenya, recording the tribal singing of the Samburu to raise funds for the charity that oversees the welfare of the people and their environment. It was World Environment Day and to celebrate we undertook a land art project, drawing the shape of an elephant in the dry river bed, and filling in the body with natural materials."
