Presentation by Dan Rosenberger and Denise Silva - Road Runner Photography

Dan and Denise will share images from the January trip to Iceland.

Iceland is known as the landscape photographer’s paradise, with vast landscapes that are alien in their starkness. Here is some of what Iceland has to offer:

·       Quaint villages, churches, and barns speckle the countryside.

·       Icelandic horses greet you at the fence line and patiently wait for the images to be captured.

·       South Eastern Iceland’s most beautiful waterfalls cascade from hundreds of feet above you.

·       Icebergs drift about the glacier lagoon, shifting and crashing as they make their way to sea.

·       Massive cliff walls plunge into the ocean.

If it sounds amazing, it is because it is!

"If you are passionate about photography, enjoy travel, and prefer learning new techniques in the field and not in the classroom.... then a trip with Road Runner Photography may be for you!”

Program by Roy Sewall

Roy will do a program of portfolio reviews for BCC members. We need 6 or more members that are willing to put together a focused body of work consisting of 10-12 images for review and discussion.  (The portfolio must be a focused body of work - this was not very well understood last year when Roy did a similar program).   Use the same format that we use for digital competitions for your files and prepare a 25 to 50 word statement of what the theme is about.

Please send the photos with the statement to Roger Miller at rcm.ipl44@gmail.com .
