Join us for the first meeting of the 2014-15 NHCC Season Costa Rica -- Nature's Paradise Sept 15th (Whitney Center)

Join us for the first meeting of the 2014-15 NHCC Season
Costa Rica -- Nature's Paradise
Sept 15th (Whitney Center)



Program description: This program highlights some of the natural wonders, diversity, beauty, and contrasts of Costa Rica. This small country is a paradise for nature lovers and biologists, and for photographers. I will illustrate how the mountains and volcanoes separating the coastal areas lead to microclimates ranging from very wet to very dry, and from tropical to sub-alpine, and some of the flora and fauna characteristic of each. The program shows many places and species, and it also describes of some of the experiences encountered in the preparation of the photo-based book.




 Bio -- Doug Goodell has had a life long interest in photography, and has focused on nature and conservation subjects since 1998, with a special interest in avian photography. He is contributor to the book In the "Presence of Nature" (2004) and is co-author of a children's book "Duck Enough to Fly" (2005) and a natural history photographic book, "Jungle of the Maya" (2006), about Belize, Guatemala, and Yucatan. His most recent book, "Nature's Paradise - Costa Rica" (2012), is a photographic presentation of the natural wonders of Costa Rica. His work has been exhibited as fine-art prints at gallery's and festivals throughout the United States, and is in numerous private and corporate collections. He lectures and teaches on subjects of nature photography and digital techniques.

Epson R-300M printer

Lisa -
Could you please put this out on the NHCC blog for me please?  Thank you.
I have an older Epson R-300M printer that I have used to use to make quick 4x6 prints (printer goes up to 8x10 print size) but which I no longer need.  If anyone in the club is just starting out in digital photography and would like this printer, along with the Epson manual, any ink cartridges I still have, and several packs of 4x6 glossy paper, they may have it for free.  I can bring all to a NHCC meeting but I do not want to bring it back and forth but only when someone says they want it and will be at the meeting.
Thanks!
Gary Prestash
