Photos from June Show

A big thank you to Trent Enzsol for capturing some great images at our last show. Here are Trent’s instructions for downloading images and purchasing prints:

“There is no charge for people to download low resolution files for social media purposes (Facebook, instagram, Twitter, etc) using the password RHVA - I only ask that people do not crop my Lens on Nature watermark in the lower left corner or do any edits to the images. I keep it the watermark small so it does not create much of a distraction but I appreciate people keeping my credits to images with the watermark. If people want prints then they can contact me directly to choose the type of media, the size and costs.”
