Many of the pictures featuring in this week’s camera club are from the early birds among us who were prepared to sacrifice a few hours’ sleep to capture the sunrise.

The photographs certainly did not disappoint, with some seriously eye-catching snaps as we wade ever deeper into the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness.

Ant Niles, Maureen Jackson, Jonathan Stow, David Evans, Lynn Sampson, and Fiona Malby are the photographers whose snaps we picked out from the Colchester Gazette's Camera Club Facebook page.
