Guests gathered to admire an exhibition of landscape photography on Friday night at Verulamium Musuem.
The Mayors of St Albans and Harpenden were among the visitors to the Nature through the Seasons exhibition which is from Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust nature reserves.
The images were captured by prize winning local landscape photographers over the last 18 months and is part of an ongoing collaboration between the Wildlife Trust and Harpenden Photographic Society.
St Albans Mayor, Annie Brewster, said: "I am most impressed with the standard of photography displayed at the Nature through the Seasons exhibition.
The images are simply beautiful and the Colonnade at Verulamium Museum seems to provide an attractive and perfectly lit hanging space.
"The exhibition reminds us of the stunning countryside we have locally which is amazing remembering our close proximity to London."
The exhibition runs until Thursday, August 29 at Verulamium Museum, in St Michael’s Street, with free entry to residents of St Albans District.
