Come to a unique place to photograph sunrise at a ridge!

Add my cell phone to yours NOW:[masked] (Simone)

OCTOBER 20, 2013, Sunday, @ 5:45 am. 

Meet at Starbucks by Woodmen and Lexington.

READ THE ENTIRE EMAIL with instructions.

One of our members was kind enough to invite us for photographing sunrise at her property, at a beautiful ridge, with view to the mountains.

We will have beautiful rock formations, possible wild life, great opportunity for macro photography and outstanding view. Canyons, sand rock formations, old roots, cactus, in a trail inside her property are only a few of the many interesting photo opportunities.


Bring the proper layers.

You will not be allowed in the property without closed shoes (hiking shoes).


You have to wear layers and long pants due to the amazing amount of cactus, brushes, etc, to avoid getting hurt.

This is a private property, so you have to respect these rules if you want to participate.

There is no special access in the private property, no paved trails. It is an extreme unleveled land. 

Group is limited to a small size as this is a private property.

No one can take anything from the land.

This is a great chance to get out of the house, photograph something different than your average picture, and get to know other members.

We will meet at Starbucks by Woodmen and Lexington, at 5:45 AM - YES, that early in the morning!

To respect her privacy, I am not going to put her address here. I will give you the instructions and directions to get there once we meet at Starbucks: GPS WILL NOT FIND IT. If you don't come, you don't get directions.

We will be at the property before sunrise. The property is about 20, 25 minutes driving EAST of Woodmen. Bring your tripods for sunrise and macro pictures.

It is a place with possible high wind, so please BRING:

• gloves

•  hats

• layered coats

• fleece

• jaquet that protects from cold winds

• water, snacks


• your camera


• macro lens

• zoom lens or different fixed lenses

If you have any questions, please call me:[masked] (Simone)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
