With the darker nights starting to creep in and with thoughts turning from beaches and barbecues to Halloween and fireworks, it’s beginning to feel like summer was a long time ago already.

It was just a few weeks ago when we were having that scorching heatwave, but now autumn is upon us.

Fortunately the memories of the long hot summer live on – not least thanks to some superb photos captured by News Shopper Camera Club members.

Feel some of that heat again with this selection of pictures which includes the August winner in our monthly competition, taken by Jason Shepherd from Biggin Hill who caught a gorgeous sunset over Brockley.

News Shopper:

The News Shopper Camera Club is a group on Facebook for people looking to get their photos published online and in print.

Now with more than 630 members, the club invites people to share their best photos from around the area, as well as talk to fellow photographers, join in projects and enter our competitions.

If you’re an enthusiastic amateur snapper, you can request to join the group - once accepted, you’ll be able to add your pictures to the group, join in the conversation and contests and also possibly have some of your photos used here in the newspaper or on our website.
