Denver Botanic Gardens - early opening, members only

9/3/13 update: I may not be able to attend this meetup, but carry on!  No need to wait for me!!!  There is no formal instruction or social event for this meetup, so meet at the gate at 7 am and go forth.  Enjoy the gardens.  A hint:  this is a great time of year for abstractions such as blurs, slap/zooms, motion images.  As well as water lilies!

DBG is a wonderful place to shoot, and the opportunity to be in the gardens while the light is still somewhat soft is rare. If you're a member of the Gardens, take advantage of this opportunity! If you're not a member, it's some of the best $$ I spend.

This will not be a formal meetup - I'm glad to meet you at the gate, glad to shoot with you, but we won't have any formal instruction or followup. I'm headed to work as soon as I'm done photographing.

7-9 a.m.

Details:

  • Please bring your membership card(s) for admission.
  • Admission is for the number of guests your membership allows.
  • Paid admission will not be accepted.
  • RSVPs are not required.

There is often a request for breakfast after to share what we found - this is a work day for me, so I can't spearhead this but any one of you attending is more than welcome to organize the 'after DBG' feast!  There is a nice cafe right in the Gardens, just past the main entry - it's easy, it's simple, and there is room for everyone to participate!

    I'm always amazed by the members who stop and take their time to chat, pass along photo pearls of wisdom, and even go so far as to offer their lenses to try - you know who you are, and thank you, again! It was a great day for catching up with people, meeting new people, and, yes - even taking a few snaps.

    The weather wasn't too hot, the company was great, now I'm going to look at the photos and hope there are some good ones.

    Sorry - someone else can go for me. Lingering health issues are preventing me from doing this...

    Hi Susan, I'll be on the lookout! I'll be the guy with a camera in one hand and a bagel in the other...wait, how do I hold my coffee? Never mind.
