Mile High Wildlife Photo Club

November 2012 Meeting Summary

< Previous Meeting | Index | Next Meeting > At our November meeting , founding members Rita and Charlie Summers presented a slide show program titled “Antarctica—50 Degrees and South”.

The program started with Charlie explaining some of the geography involved. The Falkland Islands, South Georgia Island, and the South Sandwich Islands lie farther from Antarctica. Coronation Island, Elephant Island, the Bridgeman Islands, Livingston Island, and Bransfield Island all lie off Antarctica. The Summers have also visited mainland Antarctica south of these islands.

The program included scenery, including a beautiful sequence of icebergs, but focused on the region’s wildlife, including a variety of penguin species, seals, whales, and birds. It was amazing to see this sample of the diversity of life in one of the harshest climates on the planet.
The program coincided with their work on display at The Wildlife Experience, so member could view the exhibit during the break. After the break, Charlie judged the photo competition (sorry, flower photographers…..). < Previous Meeting | Index | Next Meeting >
