Readers' photos on the theme of "on the road".
Each week, we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week it is "on the road", and we begin with this picture by Tim Barnsley of Hue, Vietnam.
David Carter: "The council did not fill this pothole so some resident toys tried themselves."
Erinn Bowen: "When you're on the road, home is wherever you can rest your feet."
Jim Gehlhar: "A photo taken in 1968 from the back of a coach from Shiraz to Kazerun, Iran."
Jenny Vine : "Rest stop along the Pacific Coast Highway, reflecting the mix of travellers, and travel."
Helena Howen: "Waiting at the train station whilst travelling."
Daniel Thorpe: "Taken from my recent journey from Cape Town to Nairobi. In Namibia, one of the many wild horses that somehow have adapted to live in the wilderness. This one happens to be blocking the road."
Julia Adamo: "It was an exceptionally hot day crawling on the M6 (not exceptional) and the DeLorean driver had activated the Delorean Air Conditioning System. Taken this time last year, by myself (passenger)."
Victor Woisky: "A longer exposure shot of a man walking around the Truck Expo in Montreal."
Tim Crapnell: "Taken from a moving car while on a road trip near Death Valley, California."
Justin Garner: "Super-charged Mini. It was taken on the M60 in Stockport in a friend's car, using a long exposure to give the feeling of speed. The wet weather helped add to the drama."
Guy Morris: "A fork in the road - taken in Streatham, south London, using one of the many pothole-strewn roads in the vicinity."
Jordan Reilly: "This was taken on a six-week charity drive from Liverpool to Ulanbaatar, Mongolia. Me and my girlfriend lived and travelled in our tiny Ford Ka, raising funds for a couple of charities. Here my girlfriend is standing on our car trying to signal to another travelling couple who had taken a wrong turn around the mountain spur."
David Leadbetter: "This is my boy, Cas, dribbling his ball down the road towards the setting sun in Salalah, Oman. This was about five years ago, so he was only two."
Faisal Husain: "A man speeds down a mountain towards Mashhad, Iran, before the heavy rains start."
Sarah Burnside: "Life on the road can be amazing. That is unless your car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. This is the scenario I found myself in with my boyfriend a couple of years ago. I couldn't help but capture the downside to a free and easy way of life."
Judy Berrian: "The highway alongside my mom's property is striped every two years, although apparently not swept as often. Of course we don't expect this photo to be a serious candidate, but we couldn't resist sending you this - literally - 'on the road' photo!"
