Happy New Year from the SLCC

Ann Posiviata

I hope this finds you all safe and rested to begin the 2020 new year. What better way than to come see Colleen Miniuk share her presentation on Wildflowers and hopefully some of her best spots to shoot them!

Our featured image is by one of our veteran members, Jon Berghoff, taken with his Nikon D750 using a Nikon 24 – 70mm f/2.8 lens set to 31mm, 1/60 second and ISO at 1000. Jon took this from the veranda of his cruise ship while enjoying the harbor view visiting China last fall.
