@robhewis‘s pen and ink illustration of the White Hart Hotel in Lincoln was one of the first submissions we had via Instagram, and we were thrilled to receive it! The use of tone and perspective in this image is wonderful, and really brings out the beauty of this 14th century building.

@_jill_m_ submitted this lovely photograph of a herd of sheep grazing in a Lincolnshire field. Sheep farming and the wool trade have brought wealth to Lincoln since the Middle Ages. Indeed, the Corby Glen sheep fair has been held annually since 1238!

Ok, ok – this is one of ours. But we just loved looking out at the wind turbines on Skegness sea front at the start of this week, and could resist a quick snap! Check out more of Our Lincolnshire’s photographs here.

This beautiful sunrise photograph by @paulhollowaylincs took our breath away, It was taken down at Tallington Lakes in Stamford, where there are loads of great outdoor leisure activities on offer. We certainly wouldn’t mind paddling out into this scenery!
