Springtime on the Plains

  • Apr 7, 2013 · 6:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

A wondrous place indeed.  Riparian habitat, filled with birds (local such as owls, hawks, eagles, both bald and golden, plus the spring migratory flocks), coyote, fox, deer, potential for bison.  We'll capture sunrise as it comes across the plains and lights the face of the front range, then turn our attention to the details of the creatures coming to life around us.

Sunrise is at ~6:30.  Arsenal opens at 6.  We will leave the visitor center promptly at 6:05 am to get positioned for sunrise (actual location TBD).

Be prepared for the outdoors; there may be hiking involved - it's not hard, little/no elevation gain, but may be wet.  Potential shooting includes sunrise, reflections, birds (bring out those long, fast lenses if you own them!); intimate landscapes, large mammals.  We'll see what presents itself for the day.

Please note:  Limited group size, RSVP will be enforced.   If you cannot attend, please cancel so others might enjoy this beautiful location. Because of the limited group size, no visitors, please; members only.

Cost of entry:  FREE

More details to follow.

ADMINISTRATIVE NOTE:  If you've been a 'no show' for one of our limited attendance events (such as Tools and Techniques, classroom events, etc), you may be restricted from future limited attendance events.

    Excellent! Great location, good weather and good company! Catherine and Bob are wonderful coaches and really great event hosts. I enjoyed the breakfast get together afterwards too. Learned a lot about photography from everyone around the table ......and....a bonus tip from Bob --- two Talking Toms when you need a bit of laughter in your day :)

    I'm going to have to back out of this shoot. I need to attend to some problems that sprung up the last minute.

    I am signed up for the one in May, and didn't realize until today that I was signed up for both. Sorry, hopefully someone will be able to fill my spot.

    This could very well end up being Snow on the Plains Part II with our April weather :)
