2019 Calendar Nominations
« on: September 09, 2018, 09:00:45 PM »
Time to start the nominations for our 2019 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, 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 29 at 10:00PM.

For anyone new around here, the last eight calendars can be viewed here:
2018
2017
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.

I'm thinking we could use a fox pic nomination for the 2019 calendar. ;)

In case anybody is interested, here's a Google+ album with more photos from the trip.

Well of course we're interested in photos!
This one is my favorite. 2019 calendar nominations should start in 8 months or so. ;)

Nice. However, since panos have lots of wasted space, I nominate these as a combo.

Ditto. Maybe behind the little house I call the Border Patrol House over on the east side of the park. <edit> Barker Lodge Research Station or something like that. But, that's not it.<not editing no mo> It's pretty cool looking from the front but I've seen the USBP vehicles there enough times that I never drove in the driveway


<edit again>Boquillas. Since I've never been there and I could be wrong I can't say where <not editing no mo>

I've been there, and that doesn't look familiar. So curious...

The top one of the two combined panoramas?  If that's the one, it is in Boquillas behind Falcon's.
