This is a limited attendance meetup, please review attendance policy in the discussions (Group Policies & Common Sense Pointers). Paid members only.
We will be shooting a water fall at night, with lights flowing down the river and backlighting the waterfall or pool in front of it.
Doane's Fall is comparatively close to the Boston area (1.5 hours; most falls are in Berkshire county) and is large enough to be interesting, has several cascading portions, which allows us to spread out into smaller groups. It is easy to access from the road (0.5 miles).
Plan on bringing foot wear that can get wet, I anticipate that at least some of us will need to step into the water to place and retrieve lights. I have several water-proof small lights that we can float down the fall, Lisa has larger lights that can be submersed. Light sticks will work well, too, but whatever we do, we will need to retrieve them and not leave plastic litter.
Sunset will be 8:03 p.m., the moon will contribute some light, but not too much at 37% full and setting at 11 p.m.
Bring bug spray and suitable clothing, perhaps a towel, hot and cold fluids, snacks
For lenses, the usual candidates, wider lenses are more suitable, although I can picture us zooming into portions of the fall, too.
Bring colored flashlights and anything you believe might add interest for this.

And some images to give you an idea how it looks. Also here.
