25th Annual Lake Metroparks Amateur Photo Contest/Show
Nature Center at Penitentiary Glen Reservation
June 11 - July 31
9 am - 5 pm daily
A great image is the product of a talented photographer. This person must possess just the right combination of equipment, skill, timing and luck to look through a camera lens and click the shutter shut with precision. Lake Metroparks has developed and nurtured wonderful relationships with several gifted local amateur photographers. Additionally, the park district is fortunate to employ a talented staff—some of whom dabble in photography and successfully use it as a tool to chronicle select projects. These generous friends and thoughtful employees allow the park district to borrow their images and reproduce them in park publications like the one you are reading.
Through its publications, Lake Metroparks can share photographs that catch rare glimpses of the beautiful, natural treasures found in your park system. These images illustrate the high quality of life we are fortunate to enjoy here in Lake County, and are a way to bring nature and the great outdoors to all— particularly to those who may not be able to visit the parks. At the same time, it is hoped that these pictures will introduce and inspire readers to visit their parks.
