There are great evening views of the bridge to the east and west. This location offers us exceptional opportunities for panaromic shots of the San Francisco skyline . Also "Dancing Bliss" the 40 foot tall lighted statue is located on the Treasure Island.

Filters are optional but there may be a use for a polarizer or grad ND

Extra camera batteries

 Restrooms: I don't remember if there is a public restroom on the island?

    Thank you SO much Versie for organizing this and every future event to come. I had such a great time! To be honest, I wasn't expecting the crowd to be so nice and friendly...my experience with these things is that usually you get a lot of pretentious folk. So thank you for making the experience so great!

    Hi Versie, after all my planning, I will have to cancel my attendance this evening. I fell yesterday and injured my right hand. I thought it might be okay, but it is swollen and painful. I plan to take it easy and if by Monday it is not any better, I will head to the doctor. Have fun, hope to participate in the near future.

    October 20, 2012

    • Versie A.

      Jacalyn, sorry to hear about your fall. I hope it gets well soon.

      October 20, 2012

  • Versie A.

    As you exit the freeway follow the road around and you will head down to the entrance gate. We will meet near the Dancing Bliss Statue above

    October 13, 2012

    • Versie A.

      Tina, I think it was the flea market there this weekend. The Dancing Bliss statue should have been nearby.

      October 14, 2012

    • Versie A.

      Looks like you accidental test run was successful. Sorry that you got the date wrong.

      October 14, 2012

  • Versie A.

    All,

    If you click on the blue text Treasure Island link above you will be taken to the Google Map link.

    October 14, 2012

  • Jacalyn E.

    I will be coming from Vallejo. Anyone else in this area? Would welcome car pooling and sharing gas and bridge tolls. I would prefer to drive, rather than do bart when carrying tripod and camera equipment.

    October 13, 2012

    • Tina S.

      Actually, Diane was suggesting that we meet at the MacArthur BART so we'd have a place to park, then carpool from there.

      October 14, 2012

  • Versie A.

    I hope this helps Tina

    October 13, 2012

  • Tina S.

    Where on Treasure Island are we meeting or will it be obvious once I exit?

    October 13, 2012

  • Versie A.

    Great to see that we have 21 attending so far!!

    October 13, 2012

  • Versie A.

    maybe some people can meet at the San Leandro Bay Fair BART station?

    October 12, 2012

  • Diane D.

    Maybe everyone that wants to carpool from the East Bay could meet somewhere on this side of the bridge. Can anyone suggest a good place to meet and leave some cars?

    October 12, 2012

  • Shaun

    This sounds wonderful! Is anyone interested in carpooling? I live in San Ramon. Cheers, Shaun :)

    October 12, 2012

  • Cliff B.
