The October meeting assignment was Fall and the submitted pictures were displayed and discussed.
The upcoming Virginia Wildlife photo contest rules and regulations were presented and discussed. Previous years results for our club have been amazing and the members are encouraged to submit for the 2013 contest.
Barbara Houston showed pictures from the recent club field trips to Big Meadows and Chincoteague. Members were again encouraged to participate or lead a group of their own.
Barbara then showed several pictures with different crop methods and an impromptu discussion on cropping and content was had by all. A good conversation and many good ideas were discussed.
