2015 Fall Digital Image Competition

2015 Fall Digital Image Competition

President's Message

November 2015


     November is upon us!! This is an exciting month as we hold our last competition of the year. The Fall Digital Image Competition will take place on our November 10th meeting. We will start promptly at 6:30 pm, for those of you who are competing you need to arrive  early to submit your paperwork and pay your entrance fees.


     We have two field trips planned this month, the first is the Antelope Valley Indian Museum in Lancaster, Saturday November 14, 2015. This is a state park, the fee is $3.00. The rock formations surrounding the park are awesome. There are several exhibits and hiking trails so there should be plenty to shoot. The trip is planned from 1 - 4 pm so we can also shoot a desert sunset. Directions to the park are as follows:


     The museum is located in northeastern Los Angeles County. It is 19 miles east of the Antelope Valley Freeway (State Highway 14), at 15701 East Avenue M in Lancaster. Go East on Avenue K to 150th Street East, go south on 150th for 2 miles. Turn left on Ave. M, and go east for 1 mile to the museum. Or exit Pearblossom Highway (138) at 165th Street East and travel north. Bear right as 165th turns into 170th Street East. Continue north on 170th to Avenue M. Turn left on Avenue M, and go west for 1 mile to the museum.

Latitude/Longitude: 34.7506 / -118.3583 


     The second trip is to Matador Beach in Malibu on November 28th, time to be announced as we get closer.


     Also up for this month, on the 21st there is a City of Santa Clarita sponsored Photo Walk at the Placerita Nature Center starting at 8:30 am and lasting until around noon. We will start with coffee and donuts, do a quick talk and then shoot the park from about 9:30 - 11 then load some photos and have a discussion in the Nature Center.


     We are finalizing our Holiday Party which will be held on Friday Dec. 18, 2015 at the Sierra Hills Clubhouse in Canyon Country. I will announce the time soon, we will be catering again from “Rattlers”.


     The new theme for  the Month is “Holiday Lights”, we will have a Holiday lights tour on the 12th of December, details to follow.


     I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving! Good Luck in the Fall Digital Image Competition!


Keep shooting,



 Coming Soon!
