What great entries you all had for our Wildflowers/Desert Scenes Competition! Hutch said he had a hard time choosing winners in the Divisions with more entries. Kudos to everyone who entered!

Our judge, Hutch Hutchison, spent a while going through all the images and writing helpful comments on each one. He included crop suggestions if needed as well.

You can view the galleries of the images along with the comments at: Or at

Each Division has its own gallery. Just click on the Icon for each Division and the gallery will open. Winners are at the beginning of each gallery with their name and image title. The judge’s comments will be below the image. You can navigate between images using the arrows at the top of the screen. The judge may reference a suggested crop, which can be seen by selecting “View Comments” at the upper
right or below the comments. (Caution: There is a bug in the software that will cause the “View Comments” page to sometimes show as shaded and prevent the user from proceeding any further. Use the browser’s refresh button to restore proper function. Alternately, push “ESC” and return to the main gallery) You can return to the main group by clicking on LPA Wildflowers-Desert at the Top Left.


Hello to everyone! LPA’s Board of Directors has discussed our response to California’s ongoing Stay At Home orders. We have suspended all face-to-face activities, which includes our meetings twice a month, any field trips, board meetings, Discussion groups, etc. through April and likely May. We will let you know as soon as we are ready to resume regular meetings when it is safe.

Instead, we will be holding our Board meeting via Zoom. We are working on ideas regarding meeting for April and will let you know if we decide to do a Facebook watch party or Zoom meeting for our meetings on the 3rd and 4th Tuesdays. If you have any ideas of ways to host on-line meetings, please feel free to contact our president, Kathy Newman at We would love your ideas!

We would also love ideas on how to keep our members engaged and active in photography despite the tough situation we find ourselves in. We have been having weekly challenges in our Facebook group to encourage you to continue your photography at home. We invite you to check that out at

Thanks so much for your patience and understanding!

Kathy Newman
LPA President
