While I prefer to capture our environment, especially the Everglades, by painting, you might enjoy capturing our natural world through photographs. There is endless subject matter is Collier County, with interesting native species of plants and animals, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, and the light always playing on the water and providing a special mood.
If photography is your medium and you are over 14 years of age and live in Collier County, you are eligible to enter your photographs in Marco Island's “Southwest Florida Native Flora & Fauna” photo contest. You must be an amateur, and have not received monetary compensation for your photography in exhibits, sales or through journalism.
Your natural world photographs in the categories of black and white, color, and creative can be be submitted at City Hall between February 1st thru April 5th, 2010. Entered photographs will be displayed at a City Community event to be held at Mackle Park on Saturday, April 10th.
