Many of you should remember Lynn's presentation to our group earlier this year. She is a fantastic photographer and knows the Philippine coral reefs like the back of her hand. If you missed her last presentation, or would like to hear her latest, you should attend the next meeting of the League of Underwater Photographers (LOUP) on November 7th. I am forwarding the notice below.

The Philippines, comprised of 7,107 islands, is being called "the Center of

presentation will show you six spectacular diving destinations: Tubbataha, a

exciting new area; Donsol, the whale shark capital of the world; Anilao, a

macro critters. She will be happy to answer all your questions on how she
photographed any of the critters.
