: Quarry HIll Gardens

Hayward, CA 12841
Quarryhill is a 25 acre botanical garden of mature, flowering Asian trees & shrubs. Magnolias, dogwoods, maples, birches, roses, lilies, rhododendrons, and many others are laced with paths and hidden places to sit and relax, while surrounded by ponds, waterfalls, and vistas of the Sonoma Valley.
The turning leaves should provide awesome landscape photos as well as some macro images if the wind stays down. Bring a wide, a tele and maybe a macro lens, a tripod and a shutter release. One of my favorite pieces of non-photo gear are knee pads, and I will have mine on! They allow me to get up close and personal, as well as change my point of view. These can be purchased cheaply anywhere and are worth the weight in your pack. Also bring something for lunch and water. Be prepared for heat of rain, as we will shoot either way. There is a $10 fee to the Gardens, payable when you arrive.
