Elizabeth Park Roses

We'll do an evening shoot at Elizabeth Park. Hopefully the roses will be in bloom, stay tuned as we may need to fine tune the date to keep up with changes from mother nature.
We'll meet at the Gazebo in the middle of the rose garden promptly at 6 and then move out to shoot the blooms before the sun sets.

    Thanks to everyone who came, hope you all had a good time and got lots of keepers! We got lucky with the weather, only good evening of the week and the skies cleared and wind dropped just in time. Considering the weather of late, the roses were in good condition with everything from buds to blooms.

    The Wife and I and also baby Chona had a great time, was nice to see some of the members we had met at the previous meetups and also got to meet some of our newer members. Weather was nice, not very hot and the wind calmed down later in the evening making it easier to take those close up shots.

    I'd hoped to come, but have an appointment in Vernon at 4:30, right after school, so don't think I can make Hartford by 6 pm. Will try to catch the roses this weekend. Will look for pics!!

    I was just at Elizabeth Park this past Sunday. The roses are in bloom, but not the entire rose garden, perhaps by Saturday. The Rose Festival is June 22nd. I think this weekend, especially with the beautiful weekend I keep hearing that we are supposed to have, will be a great weekend to shoot. Look for the Great Blue Heron - he often frequents the pond. Saturday he was perched on top of a broken limb of a tree very close to the grass.

    Does anyone know if the roses have bloomed yet? Is the meetup still happening as scheduled?

    We may have to adjust the date depending on Nature and when the roses bloom. It's one of the problems with trying to organize events like this....

    Not sure about this year' s flower. I checked my album, the last time I took pictures for the roses was on June 22, 2008. A year ago i took the blooming flowers was on 7/1/2007.

    The Wife and I were just there this evening and we took some shots of out soon to be 3 months old daughter Chona with the tulips and yes the tulips still look good but no roses as of yet. Also did a photo shot of a married couple who are friends of ours and their pics came out very nice. If anyone can help us during the meetup we would like to get some shots of us as a family, have plenty of shots of her with the baby or me with the baby but none of us all together as a family photo, if someone can help us do a few nice shots they can even use my Nikon D4 to take the pics, Thanks, Bruce

      But I think I'll go again for the Tulips at the golden hour one of these days.

    Hi Warren - I'm happy to check again next week, but at this point, I'd guess the roses won't be out by then. I was there last night and they weren't even close to blooming. Also, sunset was at 7:55 last night, so golden hour started at 7:17 or so.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
