Nature Gallery

If you are in love with nature and the Southwest, these gallery albums are for you! For more information, contact Tom Aslakson.

The Nature Galleries are intended for images of fauna (animal life), flora (plant life), and landscapes (scenery) of the Southwest that contain fauna and/or flora. Though, we will also display images taken around the world in a separate gallery ALBUM of this page. The focus is on conservation, beauty, and education. All members of the GVR Camera Club are invited to submit their images of nature subjects along with a description and general location of the subject such as “Elegant Trogon taken in Madera Canyon”. Educational facts about the subject and anecdotes of the photographing experience can also be provided with your images.
