We get a lot of submitted photos, taken across Newfoundland and Labrador, from viewers throughout the year.
Changing seasons, animals in the wild, natural phenomena, and cultural landmarks all feature in the photos.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to submit pictures this year. You can submit yours to my Facebook page, our web team email, or our Here & Now email.
