Join us for our January 2019 activity with board member and outgoing president Steve Cirone, photographing the birds of La Jolla – primarily the cormorants and pelicans.
You are invited to the January 2020 meeting of the Sierra Club San Diego Chapter Photo Section at the Serra Mesa/Kearny Mesa Library Community Room. Our presenter this month is Sandy Zelasko of Sandra Lee Photography, with her presentation “The Salton Sea – History and Hope”. Please continue reading if you’re interested, and find the complete details with date and time at the bottom of this article.
Please note that due to a scheduling conflict at our location, this meeting is on SUNDAY.
We hope you all had a great New Years Eve and happily crossed over into 2020 – it’s a new year, a time for a new Photo Quest! We picked a theme that will hopefully give you plenty of ways to interpret it:
A Sign of the Times.
In our last Monthly Photo Quest for 2019, we sent our members for a dive into their archives from 2019 and pick their ONE best or favorite image from the entire year – and here’s the gallery!
Join us on Saturday, December 14th, for our monthly photo activity: Birds of Santee Lakes with our president and acclaimed bird photographer Steven Cirone. Our activities are not limited to club members, they’re free and open to anyone who wants to join us. If you’re interested to meet a friendly flock of bird-flavored photography geeks, come out and play with us!
Membership in the Photo Section of the Sierra Club San Diego chapter for 2020 is now available in our Square-powered online store. If you want to join us for a year of photographic activities, presentations, photo quests and more, please click here: Sierra Club Photo Section 2020 Membership.
Just like last year, we’re ending the “photo quest year” of 2019 with a special theme: your favorite photo from 2019. We know it’s almost impossible to pick just one single image – that’s why you have time until December 31st to go through the photos you made in 2019, and pick that single “best” or “favorite” one! 😉
Our monthly photo quest in November 2019 was themed around “Waiting” and in the gallery below, you can find our member’s submissions to find out how they interpreted the theme.
Please join our vice chair Alexander S. Kunz for a fall-color hike on Palomar Mountain’s Observatory Trail. The hike is about 4 miles (out and back) with an estimated 650 feet of elevation change. We start at the Observatory Campground day-use parking area and hike to where the trail meets Canfield Road, near the entrance to the Observatory. We hike back the way we came.
The year 2019 is slowly coming to an end but we’ve got two more months and two more photo quests to go. The theme for November is “Waiting” and as usual, you’re free to interpret the theme photographically.
