Monthly Challenge - Landscape with Water

Time for your inner "Group of 7" to be released. Now you get to figure out how to squeeze both the wet and the wild side (rocks, trees etc) into one (or more) fabulous shot. It shouldn't take a "rock-et" scientist to master this challenge. And Barb . . .  you have a "tree-mendous" advantage this month!

As well, we will have another opportunity to photograph the visual connections of land, water and  sky.

Trillium Tracking, Tonight! (DATE CHANGE)

It's not a folk-singing group! It's an evening combined of trillium tracking and photoshoot (once the trilliums have been tracked down)!  We will meet first just inside the main entrance to Sir Sanford Fleming College located on Brealey Drive. Later, we will move on to  the Cherryhill/Mapleridge trillium patch.  Do you know of another local trillium patch we might try? This might be a good time to work on your macro technique - just saying!

Coffee and trillium tracking tales should round out the evening.
