Darkness falls across the land, the midnight hour is close at hand...and our camera club snappers have been out in search of spooky images to give you a Halloween fright.

Ghostly figures on the stairs, eery woodlands reminiscent of the Blair Witch Project and brooding birds - they've captured them all in this gallery.

If you're a keen amateur photographer and would like the chance to see your images displayed in the pages of the Swindon Advertiser, The Wiltshire Gazette and Herald and the Wiltshire Times as well as on our websites click here.

The Facebook group is a friendly community of photography fans who share their artistic efforts, offer each other tips and encouragement. Members sometimes organise meet ups to socialise as well as shoot different landscapes and subjects.

And if you'd like to see more of their work, from starry night skies and amazing crop circles to cute animal pictures and beautiful bugs, visit the galleries in the camera club section of the website here.
