The judges were impressed with the show. They were especially impressed with Class 3 and commented it would be a hard class to judge as all the images were terrific. Our notes focused individually on the images but some themes that were repeated often: "Members did a wonderful fob fulfilling the Class""Beautifully balanced, wonderful perspective and movement"They were delighted to present "Best in Show" to Lisa with the comment "This is truly artistic and distinguished photograph".

Photography Workshop Photos

We had such a great walk-through Abbot Marshlands today. Mary Leck gave us photography tips, and took us on a beautiful tour. She talked about the Marsh's Native American history but focused mostly on plants and the Eco-system at the marsh - pointing out native plants, invasive plants and even pulled duck-weed from the water to show us the varying species. She cut and sliced open a marsh rice reed and opened the pods of the yams plant explaining its' medicinal properties- so we had a bit of a plant study course which everyone enjoyed! We were also lucky to see the colorful chicken of the woods mushroom(orange and yellow in pic).
