We are excited to have Gary Musgrave presenting this month’s program, on “Wildlife Photography.” Gary has been photographing wildlife since the mid 1970s. After graduating from Angelo State University with a BS in Biology, he guided hunters for big game in Alaska for several years. He has recently retired from teaching high school biology and environmental systems for twenty two years in Texas. Gary travels to Alaska annually to fish, visit with old friends, and photograph. His photography leads him to some of the most beautiful wilderness in North America. In his presentation, Gary will tell us the stories behind a number of his finest wildlife photographs. Gary’s photographs, taken throughout Alaska, the Rocky Mountains and other areas are on display in his Pagosa Springs gallery, Musgrave Wildlife & Wood, at 262 Pagosa Street. 

Club members may bring up to 10 photos on a thumb drive to share with the group after the presentation, if time permits.

Wildflowers of the San Juans, March 13

The Pagosa Springs Photography Club will hold its next meeting on Wednesday March 13th, at The Community United Methodist Church, 434 Lewis Street.

Join us for socializing at 6 pm, followed by a brief business meeting and presentation at 6:30 pm. Both experienced and novice photographers are encouraged to attend.

The March presentation will be given by Susan Dussell. Her topic will be Wildflowers of the San JuansWildflower Identification and where to find and photograph them.

Dean and Susan Dussell retired early 20 years ago and moved to Pagosa Springs.  Their interests are hiking, biking, skiing, and world travel.  Photography is a major part of those adventures.  After making it a hobby to learn all the mountain wildflowers, they lead wildflower identification walks and hikes for the Forest Service and San Juan Outdoor Club.

Take a break from shoveling and snow sports to think about the colorful wildflowers growing under all that snow.  The wildflower season should be spectacular this summer.  Learn about Susan and Dean’s  favorite wildflower destinations and hikes.

We are all very lucky to live in the San Juan Mountains where wildflowers are a photographer’s dream.

Club members may bring up to 10 photos on a thumb drive to share with the group after the presentation.

Bosque del Apache Outing

A terrific group of a dozen Photography Club members spent the weekend of Dec 7-9, 2018 at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. We had (mostly) good weather and lots of birds. We even found some decent food in Socorro!

Here are sample images from six of those who participated. Click on the popup caption of any image to start a slide show style view.
