Through the seasons: readers’ best weather photographs in 2017 | UK news

“On a really dull day in Ashdown Forest, East Sussex I had little hope of coming home with any interesting photos- until I found this stream. The swirls of the water, captured with a 30 second exposure, caught the movement of the leaves in an unusual way. It was taken at Chelwood Vachery, which is a woodland area hidden within the forest. Weather wise, it was what I’d call a ‘dirty milk-bottle day’; overcast and drizzling. I thought I was wasting my time lugging camera equipment!” Photograph:
