“it was a very difficult judging process. Everyone should be very proud of the wonderful images submitted.”

High praise indeed!

This was our 3rd annual scavenger hunt and members are given 15 ‘clues’ to find and then to photograph creatively within the time period given. In this case it was from 12:01am till 11:59pm on Saturday, July 27th. Below I’ve listed each of the clues and then each participant’s submission. Enjoy!
