We have had a little break from the reader picture gallery over Christmas, so for the first week back I’ve put together a selection of my favourite pictures from over the holiday season.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

I also want to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who has sent in their wonderful pictures over the past year. It’s been a pleasure selecting the images for publication in the Eastern Daily Press and putting together the galleries for our website. I look forward to seeing your pictures for 2012. Happy new year!

We would love to feature your photographs, so please send them to picdesk@archant.co.uk or submit them via our website.
