HERE is a selection of photographs taken by members of the News & Star and The Cumberland News' Camera Club during May.

These pictures, along with many more, were published in our newspapers and on our website, and now it's your chance to get involved.

We are looking for new members to join the Camera Club, giving you the chance to show off your talents behind a camera, as well as highlighting beautiful Cumbria for all our readers to see.

We love to receive all your photographs, whether they are scenic shots of Cumbria, cute shots of the county's wildlife, or contemporary urban shots of interesting buildings.

You can also build up relationships with other members, who will appreciate your efforts, and offer advice and tips.

So join our Facebook group here, and start snapping.
