Unique and amazing perspectives of open space across the Tri-Valley graced the walls during the opening exhibit and award ceremony for the Freeze Frame Photography 2016 competition. Attendees were among the first to see the new works of art that will help to protect more lands, celebrate local photographers and enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres. Plus, everyone who joined us had one more chance to cast another vote for People’s Choice!
If you’d like to to take in the artistic, scenic beauty of the Tri-Valley that you help protect, you can see this year’s top Freeze Frame photos here.
