Impromtu / last minute meetup sorry for the last minute warning!

What to shoot, huge bridge, water, San Francisco, others, yachts. If you

get bored then we can head up the road to the headlands and shoot for more bridge. Where: Marin, Presidio Yacht club. Meet in that Parking lot near E street near the Bay Area Discovery museum.

 

Cost: Tolls What to Bring: 1) Tripod, 2) Camera with shutter release, 3) Warm layered clothing, 4)


Headlamp, 5) At least a liter of water and/or thermos with a hot beverage.

Sunset is 5:19pm

I am changing the meeting time to 4:30 I would like to be there before sunset.  I am not going to be taking attendance for this meetup but come and say Hi.

    Not sure where parking lot E is but we are about 50 meters east of the Coast Guard station

    January 19, 2013

    • Bhupesh "Butch" P.

      I'm next to the coast guard building. Parked near a green bus. Is that where I should be?

    While I'm not officially signed up for this Meetup I will be in the area. I plan to be in the Marin Headlands by 4pm. I may visit Hawk Hill and Slacker Ridge in search for a good place for a sunset photo and maybe some time lapse work. Maybe I'll bump into some of you.

    As it turns out, my daughter is leaving for college tomorrow after her break and I want to be home for family dinner tonight. I changed my RSVP to NO. I was hoping to see everyone. I am planning on doing this shoot in the very near future, depending on weather conditions.

      drats, harvey, i was going to try to find battery spencer to meet-up for sunset with you-see you next time

      January 19, 2013

    • Harvey A.

      Sorry Jane, that would have been nice. I don't think there will be any cloud structure to make a nice sunset anyway. It is just that the sun will be setting just over the Marin Headlands land point where it goes out low to the water. I thought it might be an interesting alignment, as the rocks on the point are interesting.

  • Cudacke D.

    are there long hiking required?

    January 18, 2013

    • Eric H.

      Not if you don't want too. Stuff to photograph is right outside your car if you are creative enough to find it.

      January 18, 2013

  • Mike W.

    I will leaving from San Jose if anyone wants carpool let me know.

    January 18, 2013

    • Christine C.

      Mike, I would like to get a ride with you if you don't mind. I live in Campbell. I will send separate email to you. Have you been where we are going before? If so, will we be able to park fairly close to where we shoot? I want to make sure I can do the walk with a boot brace on.

    I believe you made a typo on the sunset time. Sunset on the 19th is 17:18 or for those of us who are challenged with military time 5:18PM. :)

    January 17, 2013

    • Deborah

      Oh good! I was hoping you would. :)

      January 17, 2013

    • Harvey A.

      I was planning on being out there for sunset anyway, although I will be at Battery Spencer during sunset. Fort Baker will be in shade after 4pm.

  • Christine C.

    I left this by my name but I better do it here. I knew that this would happen the minute I fell and sprained my ankle! I really want to attend this but I sprained my right foot (of course) and cannot drive. I live in the South Bay and am willing to share expenses with a driver! Someone please rescue me!

    Thanks Enrico. I keep trying by accessing the change button, but still has me on. Will go back to original invite and indicate no. Hope won't be too confusing.

    January 17, 2013

  • marsha k.

    Right after I hit the RSVP button I realized I cannot make this and tried to cancel but not sure it went through. I don't want to be regarded as a no show. Hopefully another event .

    January 17, 2013

    • Enrico

      It still shows you as going. You can change your RSVP no.
