Join me Saturday 10/26 @ 3:30pm in Old Town Alexandria for an evening fall color river photowalk and we can do some photography after sunset as well. I have no idea what it looks like at night, but I'm sure its fabulous! I was going to do this as an early morning walk in late September, but given metro doesn't start until 7:30am and parking places don't open until 8am, and we've got some nice foliage to look forward to in Oct, decided to push it back.
This meet up will have two parts, feel free to join either or both. Part I is the sunset riverwalk and Part II is the evening shoot after sunset.
Part I - 3:30pm - 6:00pm (roughly; Sunset is 6:15pm that day)
We will meet near the Alexandria Schools Rowing Facility. This is off of Madison Street (2 hour parking is only Mon-Fri on Madison per signage). There is a small boardwalk with a heptagon deck area and we can meet in the heptagon. We will walk along the river front down to King Street through Oronoco Bay Park and Founders Park through the marina near the Torpedo Factor Art Center and into Waterfront Park. We can then head up into town and mosey on back to King Street or anywhere else we so desire.
Part II - 6:30pm - 8pm
For part II we can meet near the big anchor in King Street Park. We can get our tripods set up and walk about King and surrounding streets in the evening for a little night photography practice.
What you will need for the photo walks:
3. Good walking shoes/sneakers
5. Find a few parking options before hand online or mark out your metro route before hand.
6. Good spirits and a willingness to explore :)
7. Small flashlight if desired for the evening photoshoot.
If you have any questions put them in the comments below and I'll check this page periodically between now and then. Note, I don't have organizer privileges, so I don't think meetup will email me when a comment is placed, so it may take a few days to respond. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know, I've only been down there twice scouting out places, so don't know the area really well. Also happy to throw in a stop for ice cream along the way :)
*Note the address is for the Rowing Facility to help with GPS, we will meet near the rowing facility at 3:30pm at the edge of Oronoco Bay Park (photo of place is below).
