The architecture of churches and other religious buildings lends itself to some stunning images to help illustrate the theme for our talented photographers.

‘Light’ is the ongoing challenge for members of the Watford Observer Camera Club and, as you can see across these pages, they have captured some amazing photos including the sun shining through stained glass windows.

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.
