Photos of Helensburgh: our favorites from your 2021 panoramic photos

There is no shortage of scenic photo opportunities around Helensburgh and Lomond – regardless of the time of year – but judging from the photos shared with us by the advertiser’s readers over the past 12 months, 2021 was particularly special.

Our ‘Photo of the Week’, featuring a scenic image sent to us by a reader per edition, has been a regular feature of the print advertiser for many years – but ever since we launched the ‘Camera Club’ group of the advertiser on Facebook, a year ago you are taken to a whole new level.

We’ve picked a small selection of our favorites from the past 12 months for you to look back and enjoy.

If these photos make you go out with the new camera or phone that Santa Claus brought you over Christmas, why not get involved by becoming a member of the Camera Club? All you have to do is go to our Camera Club on Facebook, submit a membership request, and as soon as we approve your request, you can start sharing your own favorite photos – or just sit back and enjoy the work of others.

Otherwise, if you don’t Facebook – and we know there are some who don’t! – you can always share your contributions with us. Simply email your photos, in JPEG format and with a minimum file size of 500KB, to [email protected] with brief details on when, where and by whom they were taken.

In the meantime, here is our (entirely subjective) selection of our favorites as taken and shared by you over the past 12 months …
