Photo Quest October: Square

Old train detail, Pacific Southwest Railroad Museum, Campo, California, July 2018.

New month and new chance to win absolutely nothing in our monthly photo quest – except for the incredible experience of getting out with your camera, thinking creatively, and making a photo for the quest in which you interpret the theme! Which should be its own reward, of course. On top of that though, your photo will get featured in the gallery of submissions that we post once the quest is complete (and the month is over). Does that sound awesome? Are you in?

Night is Calling (Photo Quest August)

Shipwreck Tufa under Stars, South Tufa, Mono Lake, California, September 2016

Depending on where in San Diego you are, your days are either warm, hot, or torrid right now – but the nights are nice when temperatures drop, the skies are mostly clear, the coyotes are singing, the stars are out, and the Milky Way is beautifully visible in all of its glory in summer.

The August theme for our photo quest is Night is Calling – so let’s get out into the night!
