England's Big Picture: Get Creative Festival 2019

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

This week we are once again celebrating the Get Creative Festival with a special gallery. The theme is 'clearing the mind'.

You can join in by emailing your photographs inspired by the theme to england@bbc.co.uk or via social media using the tags #GetCreativeFestival and #BBCEngland.

For inspiration, view some top tips from three of England's Big Picture photographers.
