The sun and heat has returned this week after a disappointing July and August but the time has come to leave the weather behind and set a new challenge for our camera club members.

You can enjoy the final selection of weather pictures by scrolling down this page - the next theme for our talented photographers is 'my favourite shops'.

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

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