NECCC Color Print Competition

HDP competed in the NECCC Color Print Competition for the first time this year. Members were asked to submit upwards of three (3) color prints for an in-house review and selection. Four images made the Winter Round. There is only one class so all twenty clubs compete in Class A. We finished a most respectful seventh place!

 

Top vote getter for HDP was Carl’s “Northern Flicker Landing.” This was the image on the cover page.

 

The Spring Round images were chosen at our February 8th meeting. 

 

2016 Christmas Gathering

Once again members of HDP and their guests came together to share some stories, photographic accomplishments, salad and pizza, and a Yankee Swap.

About twenty-two members and two spouses signed on. We also had someone show up to check out the club. I’ll bet he was surprised to be served pizza and salad. I did remind him that is not what we do EVERY night!

 

Some of the pix sent to me. . .
