About some of our past events

Tulip Festival:

Several of the club members went to the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point for a photo trip.  They returned with some very nice photos along with stories of a fun time and more opportunities than they could take advantage of.

Judged Show:

Our Judged Show was great.  We had a lot of great photographs entered and some great judges.  The show looked great hanging in the gallery.

Bryce Canyon Trip:

Our trip to Bryce Canyon was great.  The Photog Adventures guys, Aaron and Brendon, spent some time with us.  They took us on a hike to a great place with a single tree on the top edge of a cliff/hoodoo and a sunset.  They also taught us about shooting start trails, very fun. We have a Flickr group where people are putting pictures from the trip.  It is worth checking it out.

Yellowstone Trip:

Our Yellowstone happened.  More on that to come.
