Impromptu Outing - Pt Dalhousie Lighthouse

This is an impromptu outing.

I am planning to do some long exposure night photography of the Pt. Dalhousie Lighthouse, weather permitting, on Saturday Oct. 25, 2014. If you are interesting in joining me, we will meet in the parking lot at the end of the North Pier for 6:15 pm and walk out as the sun sets. Dress warm as it can get quite chilly at the end of the pier. You may also want to consider picking up pocket warmers to keep the dew from forming on your lens and to keep your gear warm.

Again this is weather permitting. Keep an eye on this blog as I will broadcast a cancellation notice if the weather doesn't cooperate.

Shorthills Hike Schedule Change for Saturday October 25th

Shorthills Hike Schedule Change for Saturday October 25th
"Fall colours in the ravine valleys of the Shorthills Provincial Park have become so vibrant this past week with the recent leaf fall that a change in schedule appears warranted.  So, instead off meeting up at the Grindstone Creek Boardwalk in Hamilton we will now meet up at 9:00 a.m. at the Wiley Road entrance of the Shorthills Park for a quick tour of at least four or five nearby waterfalls  (Level of difficulty: higher moderate) 
The weather looks perfect for waterfall shooting, so hopefully we will see a nice turnout!"

McLean’s Autowreckers - Fall Outing

Saturday October, 11, 2014.

We had an interesting shoot at McLean’s in the spring of this year and wanted to offer the opportunity to take advantage of the fall colour in this magnificent setting. There is always something new to shoot, or something that has changed from the last time you were there. Incidentally, this location is equally productive for the Infrared shooter!

McLean's is an active auto wreckers with a few twists. The collection of VERY old cars in the lot is unparalleled anywhere and the setting of the cars, truck and buses in the trees and lanes makes for some great shots. You can pretty much find any kind of vehicle here, from cars, School buses, service vehicles, bicycles and old delivery trucks.

The owner, John McLean, doesn’t expect anything however we like to collect $5 from each participant to pass along to John for allowing us the privilege of shooting on his 50+ acres of treasures and if you have any shots to share we will pass them along to him.

12584 Fourth Line Nassagaweya, Rockwood  - John's # 519-856-9598
Directions: From Hwy 25 ( just south of Acton) take 25 side road west, take 4th Line Nassagaweya south, the yard is just on the west side. 

We will meet at the Car Pool Lot on the QEW at Victoria Ave in Vineland at 7:00 am Saturday Oct. 11 or you can choose to meet us at McLeans at 8:15 am latest.

Please send me an email if you are planning on attending.

We hope you can join us.
