The autumnal weather may have brought some heavy rain and high winds but there have also been some lovely days, making conditions ideal for capturing the gorgeous colours at this time of year.

‘The colours of autumn’ is the current theme for members of our camera club and they have again been out and about in the Watford area and beyond to take some magnificent photos.

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