Many photographers are introverts and enjoy the tranquillity of an early morning shoot or a walk alone along the beach or a river bank.

Once in a while, however, it’s great to get together with others and walk, talk and capture images.

Several folk from the Northumberland Camera Club headed out together for a photo walk on Saturday morning for a stroll.

Some of us met in Amble and spent a couple of hours around the harbour, pier and the ‘Paddlers’.

Here are a few of the images we captured.

Thanks to all those who took part.

Everyone is welcome to join Northumberland Camera Club.

It is a friendly, online, sociable group where photographers of all ages, abilities and experiences share their work.

There is plenty of support and encouragement for others, and a selection of members’ photographs are published regularly in this newspaper.

If you would like to join the club, simply post images to and tag them #PicNorthumberland, giving some background about your inspiration.
