The Western Pack Burro Association is looking for

The Western Pack Burro Association is looking for <br>Photographers

The Western Pack Burro Association is looking for Photographers to help photograph their summer races. The races are held in historic mining towns throughout Colorado in honor of the old miners that would race their burros over the mountain passes during the gold and silver rush days. All experience levels are welcome to participate. It is a great opportunity to develop skills. The races take place in very scenic areas and provide plenty of opportunities to practice artistic skills. The burros provide some really fun photo opportunities as well, as they tend to have a mind of their own. In past years some of the photographers photos have even been published in magazines. Here are links to sign up for each race. Sign up for as few or as many as you wish. If the sign up for a race is full contact Barbara Gertz at cbgertz@gmail.com and she can get you registered. Also a few of the races require some travel, if you are interested but would like to carpool to the race also contact Barbara and she can help to connect you to other members that are attending.

Here are the links to all the races. Feel free to contact Barbara with any questions you may have.

Free Antique Photo Equipment

by Tom Goldberg

I was approached by Bruce Hansen at the Evergreen Art Center who was looking to give away a complete color enlarger system and a dry mount press. He will recycle them if no one wants them, but would love to give them to someone who would use them. He sent me the pictures below – please contact him at 303 909 2631 if you are interested in any of this gear.

Member Gallery Exhibit

NOSTALGIC DENVER

The following is from new member Lynda Tygart

Opening: Friday January 18, 2019 6-9PM

SYNC Gallery
931 Santa Fe Dr. #100
Denver, CO

When I moved to Denver a few years ago, I was inspired to photograph my new neighborhood in Berkeley. Tennyson Street was so charming with its little cottage homes, galleries and barbershop. Just a few years later, I would be looking at those photos with fond memories. Almost overnight, those cottages were replaced with new slot homes and apartments. Suddenly, my photographs from 2012 are now Nostalgic!

After witnessing what happened on Tennyson Street, I decided to start photographing other sites in Denver as the city continues to change in many ways. Each original is printed and hand colored, creating an aged appearance. The viewers will feel they are looking at old postcards from days gone by, even though many of these pictures were taken just a few months ago.

Lunar Eclipse Photo Op

by Tom Goldberg

Evergreen Camera Club members will be treated to a full lunar eclipse this January 20th. It’s the first full moon of 2019, and the first lunar eclipse of 2019 (and this is an eclipse-heavy year, with five eclipses, including two lunar eclipses in 2019). Plus, it’s the year’s first supermoon, meaning the moon is nearly at its closest to Earth for this month, as the eclipse takes place. Sadly, this will be the last total lunar eclipse to grace Earth’s sky until May 26, 2021.

The heads-up and details provided by new member Owen Newman:
Moonrise 4:45 pm 1/20 Azimuth (compass bearing) 63.2 degrees
Sunset 5:05 pm
Eclipse peaks at 10:13 pm

October 2018 News

by Ellen Nelson


Congratulations to Evergreen Camera Club members who were finalists and winners in the 2019 Mt. Evans Hospice “Seasons of Our Mountains” calendar contest. An unprecedented six Evergreen Camera Club members had their photo selected for a month in the calendar! Honored photographers were: Dick Oltman in April with “Elk Mom and Child,” Tracy Boyd for July with “Independence,” Dave Edwards’ “Rock Blooms” will be featured in August, Leslee Hampel has her photo, “Drill Sergeant” in October, Ann Zimmerman’s “Can I Go Skiing?” is the photo for November and Ellen Nelson was awarded December with “Bison Blizzard” and her “New Kids on the Rock” is the cover photo. Anne Kechter and Tom Goldberg also received honorable mentions for their entries. Please let us know if you were also an honorable mention winner. Because the competition is anonymous, it is difficult to verify those winners.

2019 “Seasons of Our Mountains” calendars go on sale at the end of the month at your favorite Evergreen retail location or online at http://www.mtevans.org/seasons-of-our-mountains-calendar/
