THE long, hot days of last summer in Capricornia didn't stifle anyone's creativity.
Lisa Clarke knows this firsthand, after sorting through hundreds of images submitted to the Summer in Capricornia exhibit.
Lisa, the Capricornia ABC Open producer, said the photos had been submitted by people from all over Central Queensland.
She said it had been "really exciting" to compile the exhibition since calling for submissions last November.
Last Friday, she saw her work come to fruition as the exhibition opened at the Walter Reid Cultural Centre.
The exhibition was opened by ABC breakfast presenter Jacquie Mackay.
Lisa said sorting through the images and paring them back to the 26 on display had been "very painful".
The dynamic exhibition celebrates the diversity of Capricornia, from shots by the beach to snapshots of life on the land.
"It's really meant to be a celebration of the local talent in the area," Lisa said.
But don't ask Lisa to pick out just one favourite.
"They're all my favourite for different reasons," she said.
In conjunction with the exhibition, which runs until July 2, Lisa will be running a series of free digital storytelling workshops at the centre, covering photography, writing and video making.
