Sunny days are here again

Have your say

The lazy days of summer return in this week’s Friday Photos, courtesy of reader Keith G Thompson

WE might have seen the first snow of winter, but this week’s selection of photos takes us back to warmer days.



They come from Keith G Thompson, 73, and feature some colourful shots of Wearside and County Durham locations, including an amazing image of Penshaw Monument at the end of the harvest.

Keith, who is also a lifelong cyclist, has been interested in photography for many years and is a regular contributor to the Echo’s Your View on the letters page – many thanks for taking part in Friday Photos and Your View over the years.

Would you like to follow in Keith’s footsteps and see your work on these pages? We’re looking for people with any level of experience and style of photography – whatever your subject, we’d love to see them.

Would you like to have your work featured in Friday Photos? If so, we’d love to hear from you. We want photos on any theme, whether it’s landscapes or people, events or wildlife. All you have to do is send some examples of your work – about 12 or 13 – and some details about yourself – such as your age, name, occupation, interests and hobbies – plus a photograph of yourself. Email or send photos on a disc to Sunderland Echo, Friday Photos, Features Department, Echo House, Pennywell, Sunderland, SR4 9ER. Sorry, but discs can’t be returned.

IMPORTANT: We’ll only be able to print photos that are of a high resolution. Please keep this in mind before sending any work.

Taken a great shot but don’t have enough images for Friday Photos? Send it to and it could appear on the letters page or Page 2, where we print readers’ photos every day.
