Your perspective on the world: 1-7 July

Sunset

Here is our weekly selection of the best photographs sent in by readers. We start this week with a picture by Becky Reeves, aged 12, of a sunset at Southend-on-Sea, UK.

Basking sharks

Candice Pires: "This was taken at Porthcurno, Cornwall, near Land's End. We were overlooking Porthcurno bay and saw five basking sharks, two of which came into the bay."

Beetle

Michael Petch: "Walking home the other day I spotted this beetle on the pavement. How he ended up in central London I have no idea."

Shuttle lift off

Jojo Boyle: "A photo of the space shuttle Discovery lift off taken from a flight from Quito, Ecuador."

Cherries

Crystal Kim: "Cherry season! We went cherry picking at an orchard in Palmdale, California. Although the temperature rose to the 90s, it was well worth it."

 Isle of Arran,  Scotland

Malcolm Anderson: "It does not always rain in Scotland. Isle of Arran off of the west coast."

Midsummer Night's Dream performance by the Lord Chamberlain's all male troupe.

Cyn Burton: "A magical night had by all at Newstead Abbey thanks to Lord Chamberlain's all male troupe."
