From a child's beautiful smile to a gorgeous close up picture of an owl's face, members of the Watford Observer Camera Club have again taken some fantastic pictures over the past week.

‘Light and dark’ is the current theme and it continues to result in some very impressive images as you can see by scrolling down this page.

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.
