Image caption Jonathan Burley took this image of an old ruined church at Colston Bassett in Nottingham around an hour after sunset. Jonathan says: "Colours are unusual. I guess something to do with the Sahara dust that's over us at the minute. It was dark to the eye but the camera seems to have picked out the fading bits of the sunset."

Image caption Nick Lucas captured this image of Avon Beach, in Mudeford, Dorset. "A fantastic red and orange sunrise over the Solent this morning. As always, this was quite brief and was all over within about 15 minutes. A real joy to see for those that were there," added Nick.
