We are blessed with some outstanding scenery in the Watford area and beyond in our county as these wonderful pictures from our camera club members illustrate.

The new theme for our photographers' group is ‘my favourite scenery in Watford and Hertfordshire’ and you can enjoy the first selection of their fabulous photos 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.

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