January 2018 Jupiter Weekend Trip

Our past president Jason Eldridge had an idea months ago to photograph the "blowing rocks" in Jupiter. After some research and planning the SFNPCC went on our first weekend trip. Ten or so members visited Jupiter and the Coral Cove Park to photograph all of its wonders. Enjoy!

SFNPCC New and Improved Video

Here's the new and improved SFNPCC.org video that Robert put together for the club. Watch and enjoy!

Starting now, March, we'd like to collect photographs from EVERYONE from the SFNPCC field trips and put them on display in our Gallery tab of the website. Next field trip is Dagny Johnson State Park in Key Largo on March 24th. Let's make a point to create and share (and send) at least one (you can send more) photo from the trip. Email it to us here at info@sfnpcc.org.

Then when it's time for Robert to make another video, he'll have a collection of images to choose from. If you don't want your images shared online, do not send them.

We have such great photographers here in our club that we need to put ourselves out there so people can see our work. The more we share the more people will see us. Thanks!

2nd Annual SFNPCC Southernmost Scavenger Hunt - 2017

Hi folks!

On June 3rd - 4th, members of the SFNPCC set out in the Florida Keys in search of the ultimate roadside attractions; looking for clues!

This scavenger hunt was a lot of fun. Finding the clues was only one aspect, we as photographers had to make it look INTERESTING! The one who best exemplified that was Bob Richardson! Bob came in first, and our second place winner was Patricia Giraldo, and finishing in third was Sue Martinez.  Congratulations to you all!

Listed below is each clue and the photos that were taken of them. Not everyone who participated were able to get all the clues. Some were not able to participate in the entire event and only shot what they could. Some just couldn't pull it off. And the ones who found all 23 clues were our winners!
