Surfing at Cape Disappointment

Last week, TPS members Tim Clifton, Bruce Severied, and Dave Scott met up with former member Victor Dallons to spend an afternoon shooting the surf at Cape Disappointment State Park. The weather was great, the surf was up, and we came home with some wonderful photographs. If you want to find out more about photographing surf at Cape Disappointment, or anywhere else for that matter, then check out this article on Tim's website. Here is the link.

Member Announcements

TPS Member Dick Knudson has been asking that we promote the Nature Photographers Network (link) as he believes it would be of great interest to our members. We agree with Dick. The site has excellent resources for landscape and nature photographers. You may wish to subscribe and submit images for critique, or just to view some of the work that is on display.

We have received other requests from TPS Members about various subjects. A popular one is advertising equipment for sale. We don’t currently have a venue for handling these things because of the overhead required. Your site administrator is already over committed. If club membership would like to see more of these announcements, we can certainly do it. We just need volunteers to help manage the tools that we decide to use.

Membership Dues

A gentle reminder that members must have an active membership to participate in the online competitions. Most members will find that their membership expires at the beginning of October. You can check your membership status by logging into the web site and viewing your profile on the My Membership Page.

Online Competitions

Speaking of club competitions, we have been receiving some outstanding work from members. Remember to sign in and vote for your choice in the current competition. The current competition page can always be found at the bottom of the Competition tab on the site main menu. All online competition pages are listed to the side of the Online Competition Rules page. There are two competitions each month. The content of these pages is restricted to Society Members and Division Affiliate Members only.
The top 10 images are posted for the public in a gallery after each competition. These galleries can be found here (link).
