Themed Photography: Wonder

If only we would stop to smell the roses, fascination and pleasure can be derived from the simplest of things around us. Below are pictures submitted by readers of whose subject is based on the theme, Wonder. What gives you a sense of wonder? Here are more pictures of what BBC readers find wonderful.

And still on the element of Wonder, out in the sands of the Gobi desert, Buddhist relics have been recently uncovered. More pictures available on BBC.

  2. Wow! Really beautiful photos! I like the 1st photo and the reading spot in Fiji! : )

  3. Mei Teng, I was fascinated by that spider web too - great contrast of colours, eh?

    Foong, those sure are huge prayer wheels. I like the design etchings on them.
