I am planning on going to Shorthills PP on Saturday May 2 to shoot wild flowers and water scenes. Things are really starting to green-up so the steams and waterscapes are beginning to get interesting. I will start at the Roland Rd entrance and may venture around to Wylie Rd. I am planning on going rain or shine and will start out on the trail at 7:00 am. I know its a bit early but that is when the light is better. Anyone interested in joining me is welcome to tag along. If you are planning to come please send me an email so that I wait for you before heading out on the trail.

For those who were not at the Welland Camera Club Meeting on Wed. April 22, please note that our Spring Wild Flowers Outing on Saturday April 25 will be at Louth Conservation Area.
Louth Conservation Area. Meet at the
Staff Rd. Parking Lot at 8:00 am. The spring flowers have been getting better on a daily basis the past 2 weeks. We will also have opportunities for forest scenes and try some long exposure water-scapes along Sixteen Mile Creek. Depending on conditions we may try creating a time lapse sequence for those interested.
Please send me an email at email@example.com if you are intending on coming so that we look for you in the parking area.
See you then.

It’s that time of the year again when spring Wildflowers are starting to emerge from the long winter sleep. You are welcome to join me in search of spring beauties in local known locations with possible opportunities to add to your Nature-Botany and Nature-General portfolios.
The following is our intended schedule which may be subject to change depending upon what is reported to be blooming … when and where:
Sunday April 12, 2015 – Louth Conservation Area. Meet at the
Staff Rd. Parking Lot at 8:00 am. It may
be a bit early in the season however if the flowers aren't cooperating we will
search out forest scenes and try some long exposure water-scapes along Sixteen
Mile Creek. Depending on conditions we may try creating a time lapse sequence for
Saturday April 18, 2015 -
. Meet at the Shorthills Provincial
Park Rolland Rd. entrance at 8:00 am. Always a
great spot for early spring wildflowers and of course water scenes.
Saturday April 25, 2015 – Woodend Conservation Area. Meet at the parking lot off of
Taylor Rd. at 8:00 am. Always a great spot
for early spring wildflowers and of course water scenes. Great Hiking trails meander through the meadow and escarpment
forest and slope. The forest community is composed largely of hardwood species
with scattered representatives of Carolinian species such as black cherry,
black oak and paw paw.
This area is a perfect venue for passerine birds, and a historic limestone kiln reminds of this historic site’s link to the past.
For those interested in trying their hand at making Infrared images using a converted digital camera, I will have a few converted infrared Nikon camera bodies on hand. Bring your own lens and a CF memory card.
NOTE: There is a notice posted by the NPCA that Woodend Conservation Area will have temporary blocked trails and limited usage for the immediate and indefinite future while construction of new facilities is being completed. We will monitor this and possibly change the venue to another location.
Please keep an eye on the Blog for updates.
If you are planning on joining us, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to making some great nature images and sharing.
