Point Lobos State Natural Reserve – Shootout
Date: May 15, 2015 | Time: 8:00AM – 12:00PM
Here’s your chance to photograph Point Lobos State Natural Reserve. Point Lobos provides a plethora of photographic opportunities from emerald bays and seashores to cypress forests and towering cliffs. Visit Weston Beach, filled with tidal pools at low tide, which Edward Weston considered one of his favorite spots for photography. Most beaches are accessible and there are several trails that skirt the bluffs along the seashore. There are wonderful macro photography opportunities throughout the reserve.
Equipment you should consider are: a variety of lenses, from wide-angle to telephoto; a sturdy tripod; a fully charged battery; and, an extra memory card. A remote or cable shutter release is optional, but recommended if using a tripod. Weather can be unpredictable ranging from early morning fog to windy to clear – dress appropriately.
Carpools will leave promptly at 6:45AM from the Morgan Hill Community and Cultural Center, arriving at the park gates just before 8AM when the park opens. After spending the morning photographing the reserve, join other participants at lunch, at a Carmel restaurant to be determined, before returning to Morgan Hill.
Contact Mark Grzan to confirm your attendance, arrange carpools, receive maps, or obtain additional detailed information. Please include your cell phone number and email address.
