Photography Showcase: Photographers Wanted!

1-DSCN9945-001We were afraid that posting Quincy Magoo's quasi-artistic portfolio on April 1 might intimidate others from submitting their images, and so far it turns out we were right. So prove us wrong.

In an effort to showcase the talents of our Maedowlands nature photographers, and to get more folks to appreciate the natural beauty of the Meadowlands, we started a new feature,"Monday Photography Showcase," earlier this year.

We invite photographers to send in three of their favorite Meadowlands images, a brief bio, a little squib about why they love photographing here, and a link to their online pages. (A photo of yourself would be great, too!)

Images must be from the Meadowlands, and should be around 150K.

If you don't watermark them, we'll add a copyright for you. Email your photos to jim.wright@njmeadowlands.gov, and feel free to suggest ways to make the showcase better.

We'll give it a try, and keep it going for as long as there's interest out there.

In the left-hand column of this blog, you can see samples of other photographers' showcases. Quincy Magoo asked we not post his, and we have honored his wishes.



DeKorte Park Is Open on Weekends Again!

IMG_0014The NJMC is pleased to announce that starting this weekend, DeKorte Park will again be open from 8 a.m. to dusk daily. The  Environment Center (and its gift shop and restrooms) reopens Saturday as well. The Transco Trail  reopens from the  administration building to the western spur of the N.J. Turnpike.

Note:  Park visitors must NOT go beyond any orange fencing. Also, you must stay on the trail. The green mesh covering the berm next to the trail is protecting young plants, and it is dangerous to walk on. Questions? See a park attendant. The NJMC appreciates your patience while hurricane-related repairs are being made to the park and its trail system.
