Your pictures: Rural life
Readers' photographs on the theme of a rural life.
Each week, we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week it is "rural life" and we begin with a picture by William Baquiast of a scene in Calafate in Argentina.
Nicky Kelleher: "This is a friend of mine who trains spaniels and while waiting for a friend to join him took a well-deserved rest with his beloved dogs."
Pete Evanson: "This was taken at The Royal Cornwall Show. I just couldn't help capturing these two lovely ladies."
Stuart Scott: "A familiar spot for me as it is where I take my dog for a walk. This morning last November was just waiting to be captured. I love the countryside and what it offers."
Sara Bickley: "Photograph of rural life taken in Cheshire, the boys having a morning break."
Alastair Cochrane: "Photographed from our back garden on the Black Isle as the rape field was being sprayed. The machine was virtually submerged in the crop which created an interesting viewpoint."
Jason Pateman: "Taken while trekking in Nagarkot, Nepal."
Thomas Potter: "A bicycle driver waiting for a fare in the Ayeyarwady district in Myanmar."
Jennifer Godden: "Over Christmas I visited my brother who now lives in Iceland. There is little sunlight, but far out from the city on our last day, we got lucky with an incredible sunrise at 11:30am."
Brandy Little: "A Maasai village snug against a hill in rural northern Tanzania."
And finally, a picture by Diane Hirt in Pennsylvania. The next theme is "black and white", and the deadline for your entries is 19 January.
