Oh my, time flies! May has firmly arrived and we’re hoping for cool and cloudy days under our “May Gray” marine layer but instead, it looks like we’re getting cooked with another heatwave instead, in the coming days. To counter the heat, the topic for our May 2022 Photo Quest is…
Please join us for a “forest bathing” hike at Palomar Mountain with SCPS chair and nature photographer Alexander S. Kunz in May. Palomar Mountain’s forest offers a special treat at this time of the year: Mountain Dogwood is in bloom, and big, showy white flowers will be swaying in the breeze in the forest.
For the April 2022 Photo Quest, the task for our members was to study one single household item with the camera and create four square images for presentation as a quadtych. In this gallery, you’ll find how our members worked with this month’s theme.
Our April 2022 activity will take us for a walk in the lovely riparian canyon of the Blue Sky Ecological Reserve in Poway. Located near Lake Poway, this is an easy out and back walk on a dirt road, with the option to get in closer contact with nature on a narrow single track trail that parallels the main road.
Inspired by Lauri Novak’s talk from March and the photographic exercises she mentioned, the photo quest for our members in April 2022 is a photographic study of a household item.
We invite all members of the Sierra Club Photo Section to our April 2022 Zoom online meeting with Greg Vaughn. Greg will talk about What, where, when, why, and how to photograph two of our best and most popular national parks in his presentation: Photographing Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Meeting date and time are at the end of this invitation. Please continue reading if you’re interested.
Throughout the pandemic, members and non-members alike have asked us when we will resume our in-person meetings. Here’s an update on that.
Our Photo Quest theme for March 2022 was “Numbers in Nature” — and exercise in seeing creatively and adjusting one’s vision beyond the literal. In this gallery, you can see how our members interpreted the theme.
