Meet at

Wyaralong Dam Picnic area

   

Shooting

Shoot into the Sunset around the dam, and follow up with some Star/Astro shots if the weather is suitable The 22nd is a New Moon so it should be quite dark.

   

Challenge

Tree silhouettes against the sunset, some reverse sunsets into the bush and picnic area, Look to the Heavens for inspiration for night shots using flashlights and star light. Maybe some light trails. I suggest we will all be ready to leave by about 9:00pm but the option to stay later is there if you wish.

   

Coffee at

Robs BBQ will be in action at around 3.30pm at a cost of $5 per Hamburger, please let me know if you would like to have one so that I can cater for all. There is no hot water so bring a thermos if you want a hot drink.

   

Notes

We are getting into the end of Autumn so it will be getting cold as the night goes on BRING A WARM JACKET AND HEADWEAR. The gates close for entry at 5:30pm but open automatically for egress, so we will be able to exit at any time.

   

Comments

This location is approximately 50Km from Mt Gravatt, so maybe we would car pool where possible. Check the map below for the exact location of the meet. Note that the entry to the dam is not well marked so keep a look out for it and don’t drive through to Kalbar

Safety

There is no lighting in the area so please be careful, watch your footing and bring a torch or similar
