Fall Color Field Trip, October 2009


Field Trips

Our photo adventure began at the Coffee Cantina in Frazier Park. Yummy Mochas! Eighteen photographers met, and ride sharing was arranged. After a quick cup of coffee, the group headed out to catch the nice morning light.

Our first stop was in Cuddy Valley, where we were greeting by a very inquisitive llama. A grove of brilliant yellow Cottonwood Trees was waiting to be photographed. Old farm equipment and wooden wagons were nearby.

Bodie and Mono Lake, September 2009


Field Trips

Another great trip!!! Twenty four of us had a blast photographing, and enjoying each others company.

To kick off the event, generate excitement, share information, and answer questions, a potluck was held the Sunday before at the home of Tylene and Marty Trout. After a yummy BBQ, fifteen trip takers sat around the fire pit, and David, Tylene and Sue all shared photo tips on star trail photography, sunrise/sunset, and Bodie.

Anacapa Field Trip, May 30 2009


Field Trips

Sea Gulls to the left, right, straight ahead and behind. It seemed like a scene straight out of Alfred Hitchcock’s movie “The Birds”.

In case you haven’t seen it, it is a movie where the gulls and other birds mass and attack people and buildings. It resonates with me especially since Chris and I were married in the Church at Bodega and lived in Bodega Bay (where “The Birds” was filmed) for two years. But no, I was only on Anacapa Island and the gulls didn’t draw blood. They did let you know when they thought you were invading their territory by making noise and strafing attacks.

Willow Springs Field Trip, May 17 2009


Field Trips

On May 17th, Glenn Olson and Lyle Trusty lead a local field trip to Willow Springs.

This was one of the largest attended trips in a long time. Somewhere around 40 people signed up to go and I believe about 30 showed up.

I think the huge attendance was a combination of the fact that it was fairly close to home and held on a Sunday when most people were available. The free admission that Glenn had arranged didn't hurt either (a $10 benefit).

Eureka Sand Dunes Field Trip, October 2008


Field Trips

As we headed up the 14 to start this trip, there was an ominous feeling in the air. The wind had been blowing non-stop for several days and the car was working against a strong headwind. Sand dunes seemed to be the wrong place to be heading in the middle of a windstorm. The forecast was for calm later in the day, so we had to believe it would work out. When we arrived at the Eureka Dunes, 4 and ½ hours and 240 miles later, we found no wind. It was a calm, balmy afternoon and we were the only ones there. Dave Anderson, my wife Chris and I were the only ones foolhardy or brave enough to make the trip. We like to think we will do almost anything for the shot.
