Hello Benders -

I'm thrilled to announce the Bullock Texas State History Museum's first photography competition is online -- and the subject is Big Bend National Park. http://www.thestoryoftexas.com/discover/texas-through-your-lens/big-bend

Feel free to share your photographs exploring the beauty and majesty of Big Bend for an opportunity to have your work on view (printed, framed, and displayed as fine art) in Texas's official history museum as part of an upcoming exhibition on the Park, titled Journey Into Big Bend. We anticipate thousands of visitors during the exhibition's run, so this is a huge opportunity, and a first for the museum. Several BigBendChat members have already sent in their photographs, and they're online at http://www.thestoryoftexas.com/discover/texas-through-your-lens/big-bend. You can also vote for your favorites at that link, and see competition, details, FAQs, etc.

More information on the exhibition, which is on view in Austin at the Bullock Museum, April 22-September 18, is here: http://www.thestoryoftexas.com/visit/exhibits/big-bend

Thanks to all the forum members who've already sent in photographs - stunning stuff! Hope to see you at the exhibition and see your photographs in the competition. Please feel free to share this or post with any questions.

Best luck,
David @ the Bullock Museum

I wonder if the pointy-hatted folks will be trolling the photos for violations. Second pic I saw was of a couple of dogs off-leash in the Rio at Santa Elena Canyon. :ranger:
