FATHER Christmas has been and gone and the decorations have been taken down.

This late festive Rhyl street scene, taken in the rain, was snapped by Steven Morris as part of a #LoveRhyl tourism project.

Steven has been selected alongside nine other amateur photographers as a Rhyl Instagram champion. Each week, the Journal features the work of one of the champions.

"Having moved to Rhyl in 1981, I have seen many developments come and go over the years," Steven said.

"I work up and down the country meeting with many people who remember their childhood memories holidaying in Rhyl, many who now bring their own families along to Rhyl."
