Spring in Arizona brings a myriad of opportunities to take pictures. The flowers coming in bloom; the hiking trails full of people; music, food and beverage festivals; and spring training for the Cactus League. The Sun Lakes Camera Club is a great place to learn photography with resources to workshops and events by world-renowned teachers. If you have just moved to our Grand Canyon State or are a seasoned resident, our club is a fabulous way to get active and engage in the beauty of our state and the world. Spring is more than just a season; it’s an opportunity that can offer so much more. So, what are you waiting for? Come capture your version.
Featured Image: Jan Williams has been a member for over five years. She started out with an interest in photography and a desire to learn. Her Portrait of a Bald Eagle has put her experience to the test, and she received a second place in open digital at our most recent club competition. She can be found at most club events and workshops and is willing to share her knowledge with anyone who asks. Congratulations, Jan, on your capture of our glorious country’s emblem!
