You still have time to capture your best photographs and enter them in the Southern Crescent’s premier photography exhibition. The 3rd annual juried exhibition, Nature, Undisturbed, continues to solicit entries for the 2011 competition through Jan. 31.

Nature, Undisturbed is a celebration of the natural world. The exhibition will showcase the majestic beauty of nature, wildlife, and our local landscapes. The show brings the outside in for all to enjoy, highlighting the importance of greenspace and natural habitat protection for future generations of people and wildlife. This is your chance to capture moments on the not-so-beaten path and inspire others to do the same!

Take advantage of picture perfect natures areas in our community: Sams Lake Sanctuary south of Fayetteville, Line Creek Nature Area on ga. Highway 54 in Peachtree City, and Flat Creek Nature Area next to the Peachtree City Amphitheater.

Photo opportunities abound at each for the Nature, Undisturbed site specific category. Southern Conservation Trust manages all three public preserves and a portion of the exhibition proceeds benefit the Trust’s land conservation efforts. Visit www.sctlandtrust.org for driving directions.

Finalists’ works will be on display throughout the exhibition and events, April 16 – April 30, 2011, at Dogwood Gallery and Framer in Tyrone.
