Share your photos of the Clwydian Range which is celebrating 25 years as an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB).

To mark the anniversary (24 July), the BBC Local web team invites people to upload their own photos of the hills and countryside range which stretches across north east Wales.

"We want to show this amazing landscape in all weathers and all seasons," said website producer Nick Bourne.

"Contributors have so far sent some great photos.

"No two pictures ever seem to be the same due to the variety of colours in the flora and fauna and the weather seems to have a big effect on the appearance of the landscape too."

In all, the "Clwyds" span 35km (22 miles) in length from the Vale of Clwyd in the west to the foothills of the Dee estuary to the east; from Prestatyn Hillside in the north to the Nant y Garth pass in the south.

Its highest point is 554 metres (1817ft) at the summit of Moel Famau in the centre of the range.

The ruins of Jubilee Tower, which celebrates its 200th anniversary in October, stand at the top.

It is a well used vantage point for visitors and photographers, giving views which can stretch as far as Blackpool Tower on a clear day.

To share your photographs, you can join the web team's picture group on the photo sharing website, Flickr: Clwydian Range.

You will need to be a member of Flickr to add your photos, or you will need to sign up - it's free.
