image captionEach week we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week, the theme is elevated and we start with an image from Heather Watkins: "My little cat often prefers an elevated view of the world. This is her silhouetted against a wintry sky while balancing on the garden fence - probably watching birds in the neighbouring garden."

image captionDouglas McIlwraith: "Every year, my father (who is 69 this year and pictured on the far left) and I head from the UK to Phoenix Arizona to skydive at one of the world's biggest drop zones. I took this photo with a helmet-mounted digital SLR as we exited a balloon over Arizona at 5,000ft. My dad and I learnt to skydive together in the USA in 2006 as he was too old to take up the sport in the UK."
