About Art: Art is employed full-time as an electrical engineer doing chip design. He joined the Hill Country Photography Club in 2007 because he saw a newspaper article about the Naturescapes Photography Contest. He has served as President of the club and is currently the club’s webmaster. He became the Naturescapes Photography Contest Coordinator in 2011. He became a Texas Master Naturalist in 2007 and served as President of the Hays County Chapter from 2013 through 2015. Art enjoys the art of photography because he finds it challenging, creative, and lets him exercise his right brain.
Member Photo Share: Theme this month is “A River Runs Through it.
From Bill Galloway, “Of course, most of our hometowns – San Marcos, Austin, Georgetown, Wimberley—qualify. But rivers run through a lot of things and places. Dams, bridges, canyons, valleys come to mind. These offer chances to get creative in your search for rivers lurking in your photo collection.” (As always, if you prefer to share something other than the theme for the month, you may do so.)
Please resize and rename your 2 images as follows: 1FirstName_LastName.jpg, 2FirstName_Last Name.jpg, and resize to 2000 pixels on the long side. NOTE: Send them by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 17 to insure they will be shown at the meeting.(Note: As always, if you prefer to submit something other than the theme topic, you may do so.)
