Gallery: Freeze! (Photo Quest August 2020)

Dan Bucko - Power Wave Freeze

The theme for our August 2020 photo quest was “Freeze!” and below, you find the gallery with submissions from our members. The idea was to make a photo that freezes motion visibly and/or capture a fleeting moment that we wouldn’t be able to see without the aid of the camera, thus allowing us to appreciate details in a way that wouldn’t be possible without “freezing” that moment. Thanks to everyone who took part and interpreted the theme creatively!

Photo Section in the 2nd half of 2020

COVID-19 infections are on the rise again in San Diego County. While the Sierra Club currently only mandates to put all personal meetings on hold until the end of August, our photo club will NOT meet in person and continue to hold all club meetings online instead, at least until the end of the year 2020. While treatment of this disease has improved, the general situation has not changed: there is no general immunity, there is no vaccine.
