We are pleased to have had our own Chuck Derus present for the January (2016) Show and Tell.
Chuck featured images from the Grand Canyon that included the lesser traveled North Rim, Death Bend Colorado (a horseshoe bend of the Colorado River) which took a 4WD and a hike to reach, the lesser visited White Pocket on the Paria Plateau in Northern Arizona (also very remote) and Tatahatso Point overlooking the Marble Canyon and other exotic locations that were better explained by Chuck to the many interested members during tonight’s exhibit.
In Chuck’s own words: “The impressive White Pocket filled the senses beyond imagination! The drive to the swirling, twisted, multicolored natural artwork is an adventure in its own right, and the exploration by foot is endless.”
Chuck’s (self printed) images garnered a lot of attention due to their impressive scope. His multilayered preparation of the night sky was so clear, the Andromeda Galaxy was visible! Please enjoy the photos below by clicking on them.
NOTE: The 6th photo is of our own Jim Judd who took the time to set up a demonstration of our MAPS website. If you are reading this paragraph, the lesson wasn’t for you! Thanks, Jim.

We were happy to show the fine works of our own member Noriko Buckles at last night’s November meeting. Noriko shared her images from her Route 66 journey as well as additional nature photos. Her presentation included a slide show on the TV monitor as well. Noriko outdid herself by bringing in over 80 (maybe more) images. There was a great deal of interest in her Rt. 66 photos. The November meeting is usually well attend
