Autumn looms large on the horizon and the days grow ever shorter – theres plenty to be miserable about.
Thankfully, our Instagram is still serving up daily doses of optimism to carry you through the bleak winter ahead.
Our Instagram feed @Metro.co.uk champions amateur photography from London and across the UK and shares your images on a daily basis to our thousands of followers.
Here are some of our best photos from the end of August.
Stunning sunsets are a regular occurrence in the autumn chill. Thanks to @philipp_pley for capturing this one!
Really, the sunsets will keep you going, as exemplified by @chrisjdaltons incredible shot.
Even when the suns not shining, London lends itself to some near-biblical skyscapes. Incredible camera skills here from @tmnikonian.
Or, if skies arent your thing, then feast your eyes on one of Londons most famous attractions; a red phone-box. @globetrotting_gurl is to thank for this lush composition.
It might get a bit chilly outside, but at least youll have the safety of the Underground to keep you warm and dry! Thanks to @patchphotos_ for this lovely picture
Remember to use the hashtag #MetroLDN to have your images feature on our Instagram feed and website!
