2017 Calendar Nominations
« on: September 11, 2016, 09:22:20 PM »
Time to start the nominations for our 2017 Calendar!

Any photo by a BigBendChat member ever posted to the board that hasn't been in a previous calendar is eligible. Keep in mind that horizontal landscape images will work best. I am open to combining images from a single photographer, should anyone have any panoramic or vertically composed shots that would look good together. Optimum aspect ratio is 1.45 width/height. When nominating, try to post a link to the source (trip report, etc). If it's from the gallery, please post a link to the page for the image instead of just the image itself.

Deadline for nominations will be Monday, October 24 at 8:00PM (or maybe a little later if I am not able to get online by then).

For anyone new around here, the last six calendars can be viewed here:
2016
2015
2014
2013
2012
2011

Please note that all photographers with photos voted into the calendar will need to submit high-resolution versions of their photos, as well as consent to having their pictures published in the calendar. If I am unable to get permission, it doesn't matter how many votes a picture gets, it won't be going in the calendar. No more than 3 submissions per photographer will go into the calendar.

Would it be appropriate to have a picture of Victor in the calendar somewhere?

Did you take it? I guess what I mean is you can nominate any photo by any member...

Great idea! I think Casa Grande had a great one posted on this forum, but any others of him put to the vote will be fine as well.

Ya'll are the photo deities. 

I can only add 2  cents.

Through my lens, Big bend is also a unique collection of people.  The vastness and stark beauty of the place and its critters are surely #1.  But the people who love the place add a unique human element.  Bottom line: what about one month that is a collage of BB people?
Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.

Happy to say I have a picture of Victor.   Sad to say, I don't think it's of the quality that most of the other pictures I see on here are.  I posted it on the thread that announced his passing.

I agree that Casa Grande has a very nice one he posted on the same thread. 

And the reason I posted initially is to see how everyone felt about the possibility of a picture of not just the Bend area, but the "Benders" that frequent it or have a part in it.

I have no problem with this idea. However, Casa Grande's picture would leave a lof of blank space, as it is in portrait layout. It would be great if we could pair it with a picture of the crossing, Boquillas, or even another shot of Victor.

RIP Victor

Beautiful!  And yet another reminder of how much I have yet to see out there.

After seeing some of these pictures, mine do no justice. My God, the beauty in some of these is incredible.
