Enjoy a new British landscape photo each month taken in Great Britain and sent in by you, our visitors. Our images feature a handy calendar, too.

For December 2015 we have a beautiful snowy scene of Grasmere in the Lake District, taken by Toby Makin. Search for paper maps of the Lake District.

We've made it even simpler to download our monthly wallpaper image – with just one size that fits your screen.
