WELCOME to the weekly helping of the camera club.

Once again the Oswestry Advertizer Camera Club members have been out and about their community and shared their favourite pictures of the week.

Water and reflections seems to be a popular theme this week with some outstanding pictures of local waterways and lakes.

Among the offerings this week was a heart warming picture of a family of birds enjoying their afternoon on the canal between Brithdir Locks and Berriew.

North Wales is also famous for its canals and while the waterways are not as busy as centuries ago they remain a popular route for walkers and dogs alike with their unique setting always a draw for tourists.

Of course last week the north Shropshire area was awash with more water than usual thanks to the impact of Storm Francis which led to the River Ceiriog flooding its banks.

However our photographers have also been busy snapping up wonderful postcard quality pictures of their local villages and favourite walks.

Of course no camera club would be complete without a few pictures of our rural companions.

This week we have a few cows, one very interested in goings on while the other seems happy to enjoy a day of relaxation in his favourite spot.

Join the Oswestry Advertizer Camera Club on Facebook now and get snapping.
