“The North American Southwest Landscape” a Photographic Journey
The LeConte Photographic Society is pleased to present a free program on Saturday, April 22nd at 10:00 a.m. at the King Library entitled “The North American Southwest Landscape” by Ron Sentell. This program is open to the public so come out and join us for a very interesting trip across the Southwest in photos.
The North American Southwest is a place of grand vistas and natural beauty. Last fall, Ron Sentell photographed the five national parks in Utah and the north rim of the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona, as well as national monuments, state parks, North American lands, and other scenic areas around the four corners region (Utah, New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona). He will present a slideshow of these images and a slideshow on his earlier hike into the Wave in Arizona.
Ron’s interest in photography began as photographer for his high school annual and continues after his retirement as an engineer and scientist. Since retirement, he has studied the history, technique, and art of photography at the University of Tennessee and Pellissippi State Community College. His images of scenic landscapes, wildlife, and wild flowers have won awards in the Southern Appalachian Nature Photography Club, the Camera Club of Oak Ridge, the Wilderness Wildlife Week, the Tennessee Valley Fair, and the Ijams Nature Center.
Since retirement as an electrical engineer in 2010, Ron has been active in several camera clubs and in sharing his images at nursing homes, senior centers, veteran homes, community centers, and homeless shelters.
