May Field Trip

May Field Trip

Cam Miller has offered to lead a field trip to Antietam on Monday, May 27, which is Memorial Day. The graves at the National Cemetery will be decorated with American flags. We will catch the early morning light there, and after photographing in the graveyard, do a photo walk in the town of Sharpsburg. We'll have a late breakfast at Bonnie's Red Byrd Restaurant afterwards.

Plan on meeting at 6:15 am at the Costco parking lot close to the gas pumps, where we can car pool. If you would prefer to meet at the cemetery, meet us at the parking lot across the road from the cemetery at 7:15 am.

There will be wet grass, so bring a change of shoes or wear boots, and perhaps something to kneel on for those low-angled shots. A wide-angle lens in addition to your regular lens might be helpful. Tripods are recommended. The gnats can be fierce in the morning, so a sweatshirt with a hood and drawstring or a bug net hat might be a lifesaver!

To RSVP for this trip, please email Geoff Grant on or before May 24 with your name, cell number, where you will be meeting the group, and if you are willing to drive.
