Weekly Poll
Do you think the Carrizo Plain should stay a national monument?

Absolutely. The Carrizo is one of the last undeveloped areas of the San Joaquin Valley, a protected habitat for endangered species, and a natural wonder for the public.
Yes, but I don't think it's as clear cut as some think. The Trump Administration should take a look at its status.
The feds should consider reducing the size of the monument.
No. The Carrizo should be privatized. Allow the market to tap into its natural resources.

Winning Images 2015

Snapshots of light



By CAMILLIA LANHAM

Wielding a camera—whether digital or film—is all about capturing light. The rays of sun as it sets. The pops of brightness that midday brings. The soft glow of a cloudy day.

For 20 years, the New Times Media Group has invited local photographers to show us the way they see the light of day or the darkness of night in our annual Winning Images contest.

This year brought in 366 photos, which our judges narrowed down to three winners each in eight categories and three judges’ picks.

Each of those entries also came in with a $5 fee, which will be rolled back into prize money for the winners, who also receive awards from the contest’s sponsors.

Although you can see the winning images from 2015 on the following pages, you can also view them on the wall at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art through Nov. 9.
