We have received plenty of “Water” photos for the Forest display. Thanks to all for your participation. Now, send me your “Water” photo files so that I can make a slide show for our website’s home page. Send them to the webmaster. I will size them to fit. I still have some problems with “portrait” type photos. I am working on it.
Frank Comisar, past president of our club, has committed to give us a presentation of a trip to Antarctica. Frank moved to Durango Colorado to open up a photo business called Scenic Aperture. His website is https://www.scenicaperture.com/ . He will be at our April 15 Zoom meeting. We may not have enough time to play our Sartore video. Frank’s presentation may take 45 minutes.
