Just a reminder that we’re still taking submissions for the readers’ photo challenge assignment: Flowers. You don’t necessarily need a fancy DSLR camera. I took the above photo of lupine growing wild at the Stone Lake National Wildlife refuge near Elk Grove with a simple iPhone3GS. The deadline is April 20. The best examples will be published in the Record on April 29 with an online gallery of all the submissions on the same day. Please email your photos to email@example.com and type in “Flowers” in the subject line.
Please give a little explanation of what kind of flowers they are, how and where they were shot, with what camera and any other interesting stories on how you got the shot. Also please include your first and last names and what city you’re from.
