My Thacher Park Nature Art Show submissions are…

I enjoy participating in the Thacher Park Nature Art Show every year.  It’s an excellent event that showcases the Capital District’s amazing painters, sculptors, photographers and craftspeople as they pay tribute to the great outdoors.

With that in mind, I’ve gone through my artworks and photos, looking for some awesome entries to include.  And I have to be very careful in my selections.  The images submitted can not include any man-made images – so my photo No School Today (Abandoned Psychedelia), the photo of a rotted school bus in the woods, would be ineligible for this show.  So too would any of my Rexleigh Bridge shots, in that the covered bridge is man-made.

That being said, this morning I’m submitting my four entries for consideration for the show.  The organizers can select up to three of my images, and then I’ll get them printed and framed.

So I’m hoping these choices past muster.  They would include:


What the Grasshopper Saw. Nikon Df camera, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens with Kenko 180° lens attachment. Photo (c) Chuck Miller, all rights reserved.





Yes, I’m dusting this artwork off for one more show.  I’m really hoping it has enough panache to count among all the other entries in the event.

To enter this picture, I hope to create an ultra-wide panoramic print.  You know … something that would definitely bring people to the Adirondacks.  Yes?


The Mahari Stream. Nikon Df camera, Vivitar 19mm f/3.8 lens, 1/2 second, f/11 exposure, ISO 200. Photo (c) Chuck Miller, all rights reserved.

You know I’m going to enter The Mahari Stream in other events during Competition Season 2018, so why not give it a little taste of exposure during the Nature Art Show?

This image is my dark horse shot.  I’m not sure it will get accepted, but I have to believe in my work.

So here we have it.  My four images for the Nature Show.  And granted, some of them MIGHT get accepted.  Or I could go completely 0-for-4.

But whatever happens … It’ll be a nice start to the year.

Let’s do this.
