This week’s iWitness challenge was a chance for our iWitness members to capture the final week of the summer holidays before the children went back to school, as the nights become longer and the final harvests are taken from the fields.

Members sent in pictures of anything and everything that show the summer end, from earlier sunsets at Needham Lakes to beautiful heather adding a splash of autumnal colour.
