FCCP Clearwater Beach, Marina and Pier 60 dusk and sunset PhotoWalk

A new hotel has opened on Clearwater Beach and from it's 10th floor pub it offers a unique view of the marina and North Beach.  We've shot the last couple of sunset from here and it's a great view!  Bring a tripod and you'll have the opportunity to shoot some great Blue Hour images as well.

Please note the time change becuase of the end of Daylight Savings Time.  Time will go back to later start times in the spring.

Clearwater Beach is a great place to practice various creative types of photography.  The PhotoWalk usually heads over towards the marina and you'll have great opportunities to capture a small slice of local beach life.  Watch for the many possibilities of b

ird in flight shots, fisherman and sailors performing their duties and the many visitors and locals.  Several of the buildings offer great opportunities to practice HDR.  Also keep an eye open for the many pelicans, gulls egrets and herons.

After the sunset sets, the sand settles and the shutters cool down, we'll adjourn to one of the local restaurants or pubs to relax and share our successes.

The parking in the Clearwater Marina parking lot is free after 6 PM. The other lots charge and the garages are at least several dollars per hour.  Meters on the street are watched closely, so beware.

    Hi, this is just a reminder from the Support Team that these outdoor events are weather dependent and may need to be cancelled if severe weather or lightning threatens near the start time.

    If we do need to cancel this will be done a minimum of 1 hour before the official start time posted above. We try to do it with 2 hours notice if possible, but we can't always make a good prediction that far in advance (we're photographers, not weatherman ;-)

    We will email a cancellation notice to all registered PhotoWalkers and we'll also note the cancellation in the title of the event. We also will post a comment below as well.

    If you have questions about if an event is cancelled call us at[masked] no more than 2 hours before the start time.
