Mile High Wildlife Photo Club

October 2011 Meeting Summary

< Previous Meeting | Index | Next Meeting > Our October meeting was a special treat: club members Gordon and Cathy Illg shared some of their favorite images obtained during their years of capturing images of the Colorado Plateau. Scenics, wildlife, and intimate landscapes were all included and the images were amazing. Gordon served as the spokesperson for the photography duo during the presentation of their images to the club members on-screen in the auditorium. Gordon's sense of humor was front and center (as always) as he shared with us how awe inspiring the various aspects of the Colorado plateau were for photographers and how lucky he had been to marry "cover girl" Cathy! After the presentation, all club members present had the opportunity to go upstairs in the Wildlife Experience to view Cathy and Gordon's Colorado Plateau exhibit on the museum walls. Being able to see the same wonderful images on screen and then so well printed in large size on various media ( canvas wrap, metal, collage, paper) prompted club members to consider how the perception of different images changes with the size and the media on which they are displayed. This juxtaposition was a unique experience!

After the break, Gordon took on the formidable task of judging one of the best collections of competition images that I have seen since joining MileHigh several years ago. There were 55 member wildlife images alone!

If you were unable to attend October's meeting, be sure to stop by the Wildlife Experience to see Cathy and Gordon's Colorado Plateau exhibit-you don't want to miss it!
