Every year the Maitland Camera Club sends us their monthly competition winning images.
One again this year, despite the obvious restrictions of COVID, we received some wonderful images.
Some months the topic will be open, leaving it entirely in the hands of the photographer, while in others it may have a theme - movement, nature and so on.
The Mercury went through them and picked some of our own favourites.
The club meets at Club Maitland City and aside from the monthly competition holds regular talks and tutorials.
Anyone interested in joining the club can contact them through their Facebook page.
