Summer photos win monthly contest

Staff Reports

A photo of a crimson sunset took top honors in the monthly competition held by the Carson Valley Photo Club.

Club member Tim Ford titled his entry “Rad Sunset” because of the sky’s radical color. He shot the winning photo in Bishop, Calif.

“Summer” was the theme for the contest.

Second place went to Tori Perez, who printed his picture of the skeletal remains of a large fish in black-and-white.

A honeybee about to land on the purple bloom of a Russian sage won third place for Nancy Hulsey.

Marilyn Newton shared samples of her work as photographer with the Reno Gazette-Journal for nearly 50 years.

The club welcomes new members – amateurs to professionals. It meets the second Tuesday each month at Carson Valley United Methodist Church, 1375 Centerville Lane, Gardnerville. Information, club president Doug Dill, 783-4388.
