The sun rising and the wonders of the natural world continue to be a popular source of inspiration for our camera club members as their latest selection of great pictures show.

‘New year, new hopes’ is the current challenge for our talented photographers and one has captured a beautiful image of her daughter playing the piano.

The Watford Observer Camera Club is a Facebook-based group.

It is open to all photographers, from those who snap pictures on their phones to professionals who capture perfect shots with specialist equipment.

Every four weeks, members of the camera club are set a new challenge, a theme is selected and then the work starts for our talented photographers.

Search for Watford Observer Camera Club on Facebook. Ask to join the group and we’ll accept you.
