WE may be living under even tighter restrictions, but there's nothing stop us getting out and about and exploring the wonderful autumnal sights in our communities.

That's what members of the Star's Facebook Camera Club group have been doing.

The snappers have been sharing some vivid pics of local beauty spots and nature, enriched by the golden colours of the season.

Take a look through them here.

If you want to contribute your pictures add them to the box below. You can request to join the group on Facebook by searching for St Helens Star Camera Club.

Thanks to all our members for some magnificent contributions.
