BBQ and/or picnic lunch at Point Danger

This is a good chance for us to get together and also do some photography. I have sightly moved the location to make it easy to find. The area is at the base of the cliffs at Point Danger at the end of Flagstaff Beach Road (Tweed Heads/Coolangatta). There is a BBQ there and some picnic tables. As far as lunch is concerned, that is up to you. Some of you might bring along what you need and have a BBQ. Others might prefer to bring along some takeaway fish and eat that. Just in case, it would be worthwhile bringing along folding chairs. Obviously have sensible footwear and sunhats, and exercise due caution.

With subjects for photography - we can probably get some good surfing shots. Being at the bottom of the cliffs - we should get some open shade as the afternoon goes on. Hence we should be able to try some portraiture (unless you are all too shy to have your photo taken) and some still-life photography (you might want to bring along interesting objects like plastic lizards etc.).

As usual, please make a $1 contribution - it goes someway towards covering the cost of website.

    Great Meetup! I've just finished processing some of the thousand or so shots I took today. I was almost too lazy after lunch to want to walk down the rockwall but pushed the lazy me aside and got some amazing surf shots and the most fabulous collection of photos of your lovely family, Olya. I will post a few but if you want to bring a USB and download them at some stage, you could get the lot. I got some good ones of you as well Neil.

    It was great chatting with Nev and learning the SpeedBlur technique which I shall have to practice as they were way overexposed.

    Just experimenting with how the website works...I have posted a photo which I like because I think it has movement.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone on Sunday and having the chance to learn to use my camera more fully as I mostly use the 'auto' button and would so enjoy the confidence to go further.

  • Olya

    Just a question. Is it OK to bring a family member (or two :) ) to the meetup? I have a 6mo baby (you can practice your portrait photography skills on her if you like) and my husband to look after her while I am taking photos.

    August 20, 2013

    Looking forward to meeting others interested in photography as I am very much an amateur and would love to learn more about my camera and lenses as currently the most used button on my camera is the "auto one" :-(

    I placed this address as a general location (Rainbow Beach/Snapper Rock) . You can find the beach from here (which is at the front of the Surf Club). If I am wrong please tell me. I've been wrong once before :-)

    March 13, 2013

    • Faruk

      Thanks for that..ok now I've been wrong twice :-) I have corrected the title but map should be correct. Thanks for that Sonja

    Ian don't you mean Rainbow Bay at the border of Qld & NSW? Not Rainbow Beach which is on the Sunshine Coast. I wouldn't be driving 3+ hours to a BBQ

    February 26, 2013

  • Joy R.

    Does Ian mean Rainbow Bay?
    Which is very nice too.

    February 26, 2013

  • Marisa L.

    I agree with Sonja, the botanic gardens sound so much nicer for a bbq...

    February 25, 2013

  • Madizen B.

    That's a fantastic idea Sonja. I like the "bring a plate & your own meat" idea too. I'll bring my BBQ tools & I'll cook!

  • Ellen C.

    A fabulous idea, I hope I am able to come, I am moving house this next weekend (March 2nd) so that might not work for me. I wonder if we can have a picnic/BBQ at the botanical gardens where there are lots of lovely things to photograph too?
