The Competition - 'Wincanton Winter'

We want you to send us a wintry photograph from somewhere in the local area (it doesn't actually have to be in Wincanton; anywhere within our boundary area is fine). Photos can be of people, scenic views, buildings or animals; indoors or outdoors. Log fires, cosy pubs, frost-rimed windows, children bundled up in coats and scarves, winter sunsets over fields - you get the idea. Make us feel that chill factor!
