England's Big Picture: 17 - 23 July

Each day we feature an interesting photograph shared with us from across England.

At points throughout the year we may introduce a theme for the gallery. This week the theme will be "England is..." to mark BBC News' 24 Hours in England live coverage today.

If you are looking for inspiration, view some top tips from three of England's Big Picture photographers.
