Evening Light at Heritage Park

Heritage Park is a great spot to walk around with a camera most any time of year, but right now it's even better than usual because the flowering fields are in bloom. Join us for a walk in the park as we shoot an irresponsible amount of flowers across rolling hills in golden evening light! Great opportunities for landscape, macro, portraits, and old/decaying building shots so there should be something for everyone.

    Between the weather and road issues, I think I will miss out on the shoot. :(

      Weather should be fine, but the road is definitely an issue for people coming from the east. I'll be there, but I won't begrudge anyone from the Roanoke side for avoiding the traffic headache and missing this one.

      As you know I made it completely problem-free, and it was well worth it. Thanks, Jon.

    I just got to Blacksburg from downtown Roanoke, left at 2:20 and walked in the house at 4pm. I took Rt 311 to Blacksburg Rd, however a truck driver decided to do the same and wrecked in the S curve right as you get into B'burg or i would have been here sooner, so I u-turned it and took lester's gate road to yellow sulpher and it put me right on main st if anyone needs an alternate route...Also note the SUN is out and it's 82 degrees :)

      I must have just missed it. Saw the flares on either side of the road and wondered what had happened.

    Sorry guys, I think I will have to miss this one. I work in Roanoke and don't get off until 5pm, so I think I will take 221 home instead of fighting the Blacksburg crowd trying to come the back roads. Have Fun!

      Agree. Sadly, staying home tonight.

      I totally don't blame the Roanoke folks for bowing out of this one. The weather should be fine, but the road from that direction is a nightmare. I'll be leaving way early to make sure I'm there by 6:30.

    Sandra, I'm coming from Salem, would have to be a rider and share gas than a driver. Lemme know. Thanks.

      Andy, when no one replied, I went ahead and made plans to visit Jean in Christiansburg for the afternoon. Sorry. Hope I will see you there.
