Second place with 26% of votes was Ash Hazari with a photo of their niece and nephew walking through Ealing – framed by blossom-filled trees in Dickens Yard.

And in third place with 19% of votes was Nigel Tooth and his picture of local beekeeper Mel lovingly relocating a swarm of 25,000 honeybees that had landed in the back garden.

Each image captures a moment that made the entrants love where they live.
