September is here, and so is the next photo quest! After a mild August, we’re hoping for more monsoon activity in September, which will hopefully bring not just increased humidity to help our already A/C-challenged respiratory systems, but also bring big, beautiful, dramatic clouds & sky. Because guess what, that’s the theme for the September photo quest! 🙂
The theme for our monthly photo quest in August was “Lines” and here are the submissions from our members, how they interpreted the theme, and how they saw lines. Thanks to everyone who took part and submitted a photo that they made in August 2019 for the quest!
The July 2019 theme for our monthly photo quest was “Summertime Blues” and here’s the gallery with submissions and how our members interpreted the theme. Thanks to everyone who participated!
The theme for our April 2019 Photo Quest was “Obstacles” and in the gallery below you can see how our participating members have interpreted the theme photographically.
For our April 2019 photo quest, we picked a broad topic that should give everyone plenty of ways to interpret it – the caveat being that you can submit only ONE photo as your submission to our photo quest – and the other that you’re photo must be made in April 2019, of course. The theme is:
Think about all the things that can be an obstacle, and in which way. If you have an idea, think about how you can best convey this idea in a photo. We’re looking forward to everyone’s interpretation and creative expression!
The theme for our monthly photo quest in March 2019 was “Freshwater” and our member’s submissions are in the gallery below. Thanks everyone for taking part! We hope you had fun and enjoyed making photos for the quest.
The theme for our February 2019 Photo Quest was “Shrublands” and here’s the gallery with member submissions. We know that this theme required “getting into” the subject in more than one way – we truly appreciate everyone’s submissions. Our monthly photo quest is a members-only activity. If you want to take part, please join the Sierra Club Photo Section.
Did you know that you live in a biodiversity hot spot? In fact, all of California is, but San Diego County has more biodiversity than any other county in North America (source: SDSU). Wow! The most dominant vegetation form are shrublands, known as chaparral and sagebrush, stretching all the way from the coast to the Laguna crest, and into the semi-arid high desert.
With the arrival of winter rains, the shrublands at lower elevations are already putting on an impressive show of spring festivities, in the form of fresh green sprouting, wildflowers popping up at the side of trails, and regrowth on bushes and shrubs (that appeared dead and desiccated just a few months ago).
Our first photo quest of 2019 was themed “Rainy Days” and here’s the gallery with submissions from our members. We think 14 submissions is a new record – thanks to everyone who took part. We hope y’all had fun chasing rain(drops)!
