Lycia Moore from Colyton entered our weekly iwitness24 photo challenge with her beautiful image of a honeysuckle, which has been chosen as our ‘Photo of the Week’.

We asked our readers to send us their best flower images captured from anywhere in East Devon and we had some really super shots submitted, including a line of ‘red hot pokers’ spotted at Orcombe Point by Justine Payton. We also loved the colourful tulips photographed by Barbara Mellor from Budleigh Salterton when she was away at Keukenhof Gardens in Amsterdam.

For our new photo challenge, we are looking for your pictures of ‘Architecture’ from around East Devon. To enter the competition, simply submit your pictures of buildings and local architecture at: www.iwitness24.co.uk.
