Gallery: December 2018 Photo Quest – Your Best Photo

Rick Barr - Grand Canyon Storm

For our last photo quest in 2018, we asked our members to not make a new photo for a change – but instead go through their archives just this once, and pick one single photo that they like the most from the year. The gallery below contains their submissions.

Thank you all who regularly took part in our photo quests last year – your dedication to photography and your support of the club’s activities are much appreciated! Stay tuned for more quests this year! 🙂
