Final location determined - we will be in the mountains above Nederland on Caribou Road - please carpool if at all possible! Use the comments below to help you organize!
Shooting by the light of the full moon - a different view of the world!
This meetup will be in the high country west of Denver. The first hours will be spent enjoying the long, warm evening light, including moonrise and sunset. We will take a pause for food and beverage (BYO), and once the moon is truly up and shining, make images by the light of the moon.
Moonrise: ~7:07 pm
Sunset: ~8:04 pm
Moon: 99% visibility (this is the night just before the full moon)
I scouted this location today (8/2) and it is lovely. The wildflowers are amazing, the views are all around, and there are roads, trails, and old buildings to explore. And critters, did I mention the critters? Moose in the area (which I didn't see today), but I did enjoy a beautiful buck in full velvet.
The road is a bit rough - you won't need 4WD or high clearance, just take it easy with the sharp rocks. More details in the final email.
