The thrills and spills of the fairground are the theme for these readers' photos sent to Daily Post's online gallery . Our Flickr group is a great way for readers to enjoy each other's photos and occasionally have them printed in the paper.

We asked you for your favourite pictures from recent activities and here's some of the best.

Other striking images submitted in the past couple of weeks range from a man admiring the sunset from a North Wales mountain, a sheep wandering through a bluebell field and the dramatic surf at Rhosneigr allowing windsurfers to practice their sport.
