Readers' photos on the theme of India.
Each week we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week it is India and we begin with this photograph taken in Lucknow by Siddhartha Mukherjee.
Pete Edmunds: "On Benaulim beach, Goa, the fishermen come ashore and spread their nets out on the sand to dry. Late one afternoon I was lucky enough to catch this moment against a stunning sunset."
Jenny Pallett: "A man fishing for river mussels in Kerala."
Ingrid Rois: " One of the things that struck me the most about India were the vivid colours - in particular, the beautiful garments worn by the women, as in this photograph. These women were watching over their children playing in an abandoned temple in Rajasthan."
Anna Grayson: "I woke up one morning in Shimla to find heavy snow had fallen overnight and heavy pewter clouds hung over the hills. It was not what I expected as an enduring memory of my trip to India. I took this on my old Canon Ixus - nothing fancy."
Hetali Lodaya: "I got to spend time in Ahmedabad with my mother's two best friends from school - they hadn't all been together in close to 30 years. The beauty of the city was exponentially enhanced when their memories were layered on top of it."
Anuj Arora: "Locals of some parts of Goa breed bulls for bullfighting and these bulls often stray on to the beaches where tourists are sunbathing. Here a tourist is seen cajoling a calf on Palolem Beach, Goa."
Dorcas Johnson "Resting on the steps of a haveli in Jaisalmer."
Elaine Barber: "Looking away from the Taj Mahal, peaceful beauty."
Sriharsha Ganjam: "This is a composite image of Geminids Meteor shower, shot from one of the most iconic forts in India, Rajgad built by Shivaji. I felt including an antiquated cultural symbol in an image like this would bring in a sense of timelessness to the image showing the passage of time on these grand old symbols of our civilisation."
Geoff Bailey: "Three workers restoring a part of the Taj Mahal."
Sherri Gault: "A 300-year-old historical site, Jantar Mantar, in the centre of Dehli becomes like many Mughal remnants, a playground."
Chicky Rencil: "These boys had waded across the river to reach a little grass island. Drumming is a common hobby here and they were practising in the relative seclusion. The reality is that such grassy space is almost impossible to find in Chennai and the island is situated immediately below a motorway overpass from where I took the picture."
Helen Taylor: "The tractor on the bridge was taken in Karnataka."
Manisha Malhotra: "Aroma of Indian kitchens - spices!"
Adam Rose: "A woman dressed in traditional garb returns home from the street market with a basket of melons in Pushkar, India."
And finally, a photograph from Dipin Augustine. The next theme is "aroma" and the deadline for your entries is 11 February. If you would like to enter, send your pictures to email@example.com. Further details and terms can be found by following the link below this gallery.
