2017 Image of the Year

“Landing Gear Down” a color print by Melissa Anderson

 President’s Choice Award

“After the Storm” by Troy Schmidt

I chose this photo because it took me back to some of the best times I’ve had in the club, going out with a group to explore places I’ve never gone before or would not go to on my own.  This is one of Troy’s “secret places” that he shared with us this year.  Stunning!

 People’s Choice Award

“Hummingbird Flight” by Betty Bryan

This award is important since it is the choice of our members, who are peers, not judges.
