HST Photo Contest

Post by ERIC » Fri Jul 03, 2015 7:44 am

As a heads up, this fall/winter we will be launching a photo contest targeting photos that incorporate HST patches, stickers or other branded merchandise. The winner will receive a $50 REI gift card. If you'interested in participating be sure to capture a quality entry while on the trail this summer! :)

@ndwoods There are additional tutorials in the Photography forum, but here are the basics.

Is this kind of what you have in mind?

Taken at one of my camps along the South Fork of the Flathead River in the Bob Marshall Wilderness in Montana. Does the photo have to be in the Sierra? Just curious...

Nice photo, Dave! Yes, that'll do although my personal preference is photos having a Sierra backdrop. But I won't be one who will be voting.
