NO WORDS are needed in this simple image of Melanie Burns' parents.

It perfectly captures our 'love' theme and in a strong week is our favourite shot.

Sharing the snap on the Oxford Mail Camera Club Facebook page earlier this week, she wrote: "A touch of love from my mother, rubbing sun tan lotion on my father's face, sadly my father has now passed away but I just love looking at this photo as it shows so much love between them both."

Sue Smith responded that she could see the love on the couple's faces and we agree.

Next week's theme is 'sky' and we have already had some stunning entries.

A full spread will appear in Friday's paper, with the winner announced in the following day's edition.

Happy snapping!
