LPA Hosts Photography Contest for State Parks

The Lancaster Photography Association (LPA) hosted a photography contest for images taken at the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve, Saddleback Butte State Park and Ripley State Park. All the parks were located in the Antelope Valley, CA. The images were taken between March 25th, 2012 and May 1st, 2012. Entries reflected the flora, fauna, and activities available at these scenic State Parks.   The competition was “free” and open to all photographers. We received many entries!
