Telegram readers from all over the province send along photos to be published on The Telegram's News on the Go page, or as Your View photos, that run weekdays in The Telegram print edition. The photos are amazing and range from miraculous sunsets and sunrises, to scenic fishing villages, wildlife, harbours and forests, walking trails and farms, abandoned houses and sheds, to frozen ponds and lines clothes drying in the breeze. Newfoundland and Labrador is a beautiful place and these photos capture it in a unique way, from the cameras of ordinary people living and travelling around the province and wanting to share what they are seeing with others. These are only some of the many photos submitted. As time allows, we will add to this slideshow and post more Reader Photo slideshows for you to enjoy.
