ANOTHER year is upon us and our Camera Club started 2019 on the right foot with a series of stunning shots.

Several photos focused on the festivities for this week's 'Happy New Year' theme, but we have named Maxine Hall as our first winner of 2019 with this atmospheric scene.

Ms Hall captured the dawn of the new year almost literally as she captured a flock of starlings flying across Farmoor Reservoir.

The dozens of birds may only look like specs against the sky, but we can visualise the flock as it moves as one across the countryside.

The photo also gets extra brownie points for featuring fellow Camera Club member Anthony Morris as the silhouetted figure in the foreground.

As always, we loved all of your pictures this week - our snappers have certainly got off to a strong start in 2019.
