Fall: a time of year that doesn’t really exist in Colorado. We launch straight from the heat of summer time to the cool winter temperatures fairly quickly, with the color of the leaves changing depending on when the first snow hits or how cold it is. We try to predict the peak of color, but every year is a challenge for getting out and beating crowds at the best locations. For this fall photography contest, we’ve decided to push beyond the typical fall photos in Colorado, and broaden the possibilities for all entrants.
Our theme for our fall photography contest is simply Colorado. Because it’s hard to pinpoint the seasons in our great state, choose your favorite images taken around Colorado to submit. You can submit traditional landscape, cityscape, urban landscape, or lifestyle photos—they just have to be taken in Colorado! Share your Colorado moments with us and our customers by entering! We will be selecting 15 final images to hang in the store between November 2014 and January 2015. You may submit portrait or landscape format images.
Check out our collection of travel photos! Submitted by our customers for our summer photo contest, these images will be on display through next month, and stay tuned for our next contest, to be posted next week! Here’s a glimpse of what’s currently decorating our walls:
September 12, 2014, Saitama, Japan. – Tamron Co., Ltd. (President & CEO: Morio Ono), a leading manufacturer of precision optics, announces development of a new ultra-wideangle zoom lens for full-frame DSLR cameras with a fast F/2.8 aperture and VC (Vibration Compensation), the world’s first in its category. The price and launch date are to be determined. The lens will be showcased at the Tamron booth at Photokina 2014, September 16- 21, 2014 in Cologne, Germany (Photokina Booth Number: Hall 4.2 D10 – E19).
Since 2012, Tamron has been expanding its lineup of interchangeable lenses for 35mm full-frame DSLR cameras. SP 24-70mm F/2.8 was the first in the series, being integrated with VC, followed by the 70-200mm F/2.8, 90mm F/2.8 Macro, and 150-600mm F/5-6.3. The array of those new lenses have been highly acclaimed among the photo enthusiasts and working pros around the globe. To address the needs for more towards the wider angular field, Tamron spearheaded the development of SP 15-30mm F/2.8 Di VC USD, a fast ultra-wideangle zoom lens with the image stabilization feature, setting itself apart from the rest of zooms in this category.
