We start this week's gallery of readers' pictures on the theme of minimal with a picture by Douglas Tanner.
Miles Storey: "This was taken in Toronto, Canada, and shows a rocky formation just off the beach into Lake Ontario. I took this shot just before the sun came up using a long exposure time of 69 seconds, enough to blur away any movement in the water."
David Johns: "These pictures were taken in Wollaton Park, Nottingham, on a walk around the lake with my girlfriend. What appeared to be underexposed pictures on a gloomy day provided some interesting reflections in the water."
Emma Jackman: "Along the Californian coastline at McWay Falls, where a beautiful waterfall was meant to be the object of focus, I captured this more urbane shot of a couple taking in the view."
Raj Mannick: "While snapping away at this sunset in Turkey, my friend Julie couldn't help but make the Sun seem minimal."
Mari Huws: "A world that is minimal."
Mark Ridley: "The delicious curve of a pony's neck at the Miniature Pony Centre, Dartmoor."
Carla Caramujo: "A small pine tree thrives on minimal conditions in a sand dune in southern Portugal."
Drew Shipe: "My room-mate and I made do with minimal furnishings the week before move-out. I took advantage of the sparsely furnished living room and used our vintage couch as a prop for a portrait."
Nigel Walker: "This was taken at San Pedro, Belize. Although it was mid-morning there was no-one around. The scene was one of anticipation, waiting for someone to arrive."
Danijel Dazdja: "Part of the bridge on the river Tamis in Pancevo, Serbia."
Natalie Schell: "I love the contrast between the yellow grass and the blue sky. The simplicity of the tree and its shadow highlights the vast landscape of the Masai Mara, Kenya."
What are these?
