La Jolla Childrens Pool
January to early March is the peak time for shooting Pelicans. Let us meet in La Jolla at 8:00a.m. at the La Jolla Childrens Pool and then walk between Coast Blvd. Park in the south and La Jolla Caves in the north. We should have many photo-ops on that route. Parking will not be a problem as it is easy to park that early and there are no parking restrictions on Sundays. Attached is a gallery of Pelican shots, most of which I took in February and March of 2010 that will give you an idea what we will be shooting, but there will also probably be surfers, fishing boats, seals, sea lions, other marine birds and if we're lucky Dolphins to shoot.
Afterwards around 11a.m. we can walk to Bubba's Smokehouse BBQ at 888 Prospect Street for an early lunch. I've already talked to the manager, so there's no problem accommodating us. Here's their site:
Your telephoto zooms will be best for this shoot. I shoot the Pelicans in-flight hand held, but you may want to use a monopod. For those that are interested, I will talk briefly about what camera settings are best for shooting Pelicans in-flight.
If you RSVP YES, please show up, otherwise change your RSVP to NO in a timely manner, so that other members have the chance to attend.
Any questions, comments or suggestions, please contact Walter via email.
I'm looking forward to seeing you all and another great day out!
