Image by Phil Lewenthal Selected by PhotoPlace Gallery

Solitude, an image by PACC member Phil Lewenthal, was selected for inclusion in the Quiet Landscapeexhibition at the PhotoPlace Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont. Landscapes of all genres – natural, urban, industrial, abstract – were welcomed into this exhibition. “Show us how you see the world, while embracing the quiet and minimal”. Jacob and Alissa Hessler were the jurors. Up to thirty-five images were selected for the in-gallery exhibition, and up to forty additional images were selected for the online exhibition.
Phil says: I took this photo in Bodega Bay one day when the surf was active and the sky was overcast. I was drawn to the bird sitting atop the large rock and was lucky to get the shot when I did because it flew away a minute later! As for an image that was chosen for another exhibition, I took advantage of suggestions to crop in a bit and bring out some texture in the water. Frankly, if it weren't for the example set by others in the club, I would probably never have started submitting images to exhibition calls, so a big shout out to PACC!
