As we approach the end of a turbulent year many of us are especially grateful for our blessings and hopeful for what the new year will bring.   I’m grateful for a fine team of leaders who have kept things going so well for our Club.   Although we are not able to meet in person yet, we have still been able to meet every week, just as we have done for many years.  

As of this writing we begin December with a presentation by Marie Joabar titled “How to Shoot the Moon, Fireworks. Waterfalls and Snow.”  Marie will cover how to obtain proper exposures of the moon and snow along with tips and techniques for capturing waterfalls as a silky flow and how to freeze fireworks displays.

Our December field trip will be held in Old Town Alexandria, where attendees will have an opportunity to practice street photography and create images of holiday lights. 

Education and Training will feature a presentation this month on bird photography by Bill Corbett.  Bill is an amazing bird photographer and this meeting should be a an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in learning how to photograph birds.

The theme for our December competition is “Fall Harvest.”  It will be judged by Jennifer King.  Remember that we have revised the rules of competition for this year only, and have included the revised rules on the website.  To find them go to the Home page and select Activities and then Competitions.  Please review the rules carefully before you submit your images.

We will conclude the month with two Members Galleries – “Memories of Greenland” by Judy Graham and “Digital Travels in Postwar Cambodia and Vietnam – Part 2” by Bill Corbett.  Our Members Forum will be “Cruising the Southern Caribbean” by Kevin Linde. 

Please note that there will not be a meeting on December 29.

I look forward to seeing you at the December meetings.  Stay safe and well.
