Camera Club reminded everyone to be hopeful this week with inspiring and picturesque snaps of the countryside and loved pets.

Oxfordshire photographers entered pictures for this week's theme of 'hope' and some hoped England would win in the Euro 2020 final but it was not to be.

One snap that did inspire hope for this week's competition was a snap of a family jumping for joy.

Jackie Brockis took a picture of her family looking gleeful and jumping in the air after a summer walk at Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire.

Ms Brockis captioned the snap with: "Hope lifts us up to wonderful places."

Next week's competition theme is 'the great outdoors', post your outdoors snaps to the Oxford Mail Camera Club Facebook page to enter and your picture could be featured in the paper next week.

Happy snapping!
