We invite all SCPS members to our first meeting of the year, still via Zoom (thanks, Omicron!), with Greg Russell of Alpenglow Images and his talk “The Promised Land: 20 Years in Joshua Tree National Park or The Benefit of Being a Homebody.” Please continue reading if you’re interested. Meeting date & time are at the end of this invitation.
Join us for our first photo activity in 2022! We meet at La Jolla Cove to photograph the nesting Brandt’s cormorants, Brown pelicans in their breeding plumage, and other wildlife that will be nearby, like the Sea lions lounging on the rocks, the Pacific harbor seals at the Children’s Pool (a 15 minute walk from the Cave Store), etc.
The galleries with all winning images from our club-internal 2021 contest are now available to the general public for online viewing.
For our December 2021 Photo Quest, we asked our members to look at their photographs from 2021 and pick a single “best image” or personal favorite and share it with us. In this gallery, you can see all submissions that we received.
Just like in previous years, we’re asking our members to go through their photos that they made during the course of the year to pick their single ‘best’ or ‘favorite’ image of the year.
The theme for our Photo Quest in November 2021 was “Happy Accidents” — we asked our members to find an image in their archive where something had gone wrong that changed the photo they originally intended to make, in an unexpected and transformative way so much that they decided to keep the photo.
