Nature Photo Shoot At Flinn Springs County Park - Saturday 4/17

Scott McKay will be leading this outing: San Diego County Parks and Recreation, FLINN SPRINGS COUNTY PARK , in East El Cajon is a perfect photo shoot for photographers who enjoy nature photography. I work at the park Sunday & Monday and just want our group to know about this hidden treasure for Nature Photography. Website info:
http://www.sdcounty.c... The native flowers are blooming for great close-up photography, the bugs and lizards are out for warm temps. Bring extra batteries and a small pocket tripod or the lightest tripod for hiking, drinking water, hiking stick if necessary, hiking boots, (I do NOT recommend tennis shoes). Flinn Springs County Park is a 45 Acre park with hiking trails, old oaks, spring flowers, mushrooms (bring your macro lens). The waterfall is perfect to test your settings on your new camera. The faces in the trees are a fun shoot too. Flinn Springs County Park is 2 miles East of the stop sign where Lake Jennings Road and Olde Hwy 80 meet. 14787 Olde Hwy 80 El Cajon 92021 Mapquest: Go through the park and keep right till you get to the second parking lot where the blue dumpsters are. There is a $3 parking fee. I will take care of the fee for all of our group. - Scott McKay

    It was a great turnout, we started at the waterfall, water flows all year long. This was great to work on shutter speeds. This took awhile and a few photographers took to the park by themselves. There is avast verity of wild flowers which are as small as a ladybug. This is why recommended to bring a maco lens.
    I now realize I should have had a map for everyone of the park to show where the different flowers are in the park. We mostly had yellow flowers and at the top are mostly where of the blue flowers hangout.
    I also realized having a big group some photographers will take a quick 30 second shoot while others would take 15-20 minutes.
    There is so much nature to photograph at Flinn Springs County Park we only covered about an eighth of the park.
    I do volunteer at this park on Sunday Monday so if you missed it or want do more photography of the park I will be available these days.
    Also if you are unfamiliar with our camera features I will help you out. Bring the manual.

    Long pants if to have to get through the brush. Bring your lease for your Dogs it will be good for both of you. We well start at the far back of the park. The hike will in the field while others can start at the creek. You be amazed at all nature right in El Cajon. We will the bottom of the park to the top. Yellow flowers start at the Bottom and they turn beautify to Blue and White Flowers. If you want to walk through the creek bring your rain boots. Smaller waterfalls also.
