Here are some of the corking entries we have received in the final weeks of our Life Thru the Lens competition.

The contest - run in conjunction with Specsavers on Bath Street in Ilkeston - saw more than 70 photos submitted by keen amateur photographers.

The contest closed on Monday and the last entries showcase just how talented people in the town are.

Judges from The ‘Tiser and Specsavers now have the difficult task of choosing the best picture from all the entries.

Ten finalists will be invited to a presentation night at Specsavers where the pictures will be exhibited, with the lucky winner receiving a digital camera worth hundreds of pounds.

Our picture gallery shows the latest entries, with snowy scenes and animals being the focus of the images, including a photo called Mr Willett’s Cows by James Bramley. It shows cows returning after being milked and driven by the farmer back to the field.

James also took the picture of the gulls lined up at Straws Bridge.

Jayne Woodward sent us the snow-themed pictures, taken at Shipley Park, and Christopher Smith from Stanley Common took the stunning picture of the sunset at Stanley Village Rec on Christmas Day.

Other entries come from Helen Bird, from West Hallam, who captured Morley Hayes in the snow while out walking.

The horse grazing in a field close to Bennerley ­Viaduct was taken by 25-year-old Simon Robinson, from ­Cossall.

Finalists will be contacted shortly.
