image captionEach week, we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week it is "cold weather", and we begin with a picture by Jack McCausland who said: "It's quite impressive what can be captured on phones these days, even more impressive when you can get closer up."

image captionAlison Wellby: "My daughter Emma was nine when she took this shot, one chilly morning last winter. Frost had settled thickly on the felted roof of our chicken coop, and she wanted to touch it. She has a knack for taking quirky pictures. I love seeing the world from her perspective through her lens."

image captionAdrian Bell: "This was taken late in the afternoon on a day when it was so cold that, even with the Sun having shone all day, frost was still on the fences around the farm. The close-up shot and late afternoon light highlight the intricate patterns within the ice crystals. You feel cold just looking at it."

Taken a few weeks before sunrise, the ambient temperature outside was about -75F [-60C]. The South Pole Station, outside of dire emergency, is only open for travel for about four months out of the year."

image captionGraham Denyer: "The Fungle Road is an ancient mountain pass in the Grampians, said to have been frequented by many whisky smugglers. Following several days of heavy snowfall, the snow has completely covered the vegetation. The wind has shaped the snow into a miniature landscape of hills and valleys."

image captionWilliam Ng: ". Inside an ice cave in the Vatnajokull glacier region, southern Iceland. The blue ice looked absolutely exquisite - I tried to take some close-up shots to show its unique structure in more detail. Apparently, it is 600,000 years old. This is a close-up shot of the ice wall, near the entrance of the cave. The morning Sun was beaming beautifully on to the sapphire blue."
