Mabry Mill - Bus Tour

  • Mar 23, 2013 · 6:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

$30 for each rider. The limit will be 47 passengers. Meal costs are not included. The trip won't be cancelled, but may get rescheduled a week in advance if rain looks highly likely. There is some handicap accommodation, but a few of us will need to help lift/load a scooter onto the bus cargo.

This trip is a photography expedition to Mabry Mill in VA. We will leave the Four Seasons Mall parking lot and travel in comfort on a charter bus together. We will stop for a breakfast around 8 AM. Then we will continue to the Mill and allow the photographers to explore and capture the site and surrounding buildings and woodlands to their heart's content. We will leave the location around 1:00, stop for lunch and return to Four Seasons Mall around 5:30 PM. This itinerary may change a little but gives a good idea until the RSVPs can begin.

We actually may be back around 5, but it depends a little on how long we take for lunch.

This event includes the bus trip. Please do not try to make your own MeetUp by suggesting a carpool. Part of the experience of this trip is riding together in a bus and enjoying one another's company.

    Just curious, did anyone find any needle ice? It looks like it was a perfect day to find some needle ice. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Needle_ice

      Hi, I just posted some my self, go to the page with all the photos on them, and there is a tab that says add photos. Look at top left side, just over the mill picture

      Actually, from this very page, look up where the photo thumbnails are, and if you click just below that (where there is a little blue "upload" button), you can add them that way, too.

    Hi! I'm very excited about this. I don't know anyone from the group, so I was hesitant to sign up, and I take pictures with a point-and-shoot. I hope you have room for amateurs!!

    OK everyone, Don't forget to clear your cards, charge your batteries and pack some extra warm clothes.

    Mark, can we leave stuff on the bus while we shoot? Like a snack bag or extra jacket?

    Just checked again and Saturday should be 52 with a 10% chance of rain. Should be a great day.

      ha, my gear can fit in my pocket..~sigh~yes, I'm new and have my camera and a few lenses,but will add more. Looking forward and thanks for the info..see you in a few days..miles of smiles

      March 20, 2013

    • Mark_M

      Its not the quantity of gear, but ... Look forward to shooting together. Feel free to ask questions and such. Good thing about a mill is that it doesn't mind holding the pose. This is a great time to break out from the automatic functions and see what those settings do.

      March 21, 2013

  • Mark_M

    All, I just updated the pick up location. There was some concern about the quantity of car break-ins at the Mall parking lot. I apologize for the delay in posting this, but I didn't get immediate confirmation of the change from the bus company. We will meet at our normal monthly location at 6:00 AM on Saturday. Do not park in the clubhouse parking as we will be picked up in the larger lot by the circle where most of you normally park.
