Photo Hiking Adventure
Submitted By Sachie Johns
Join The Fremont Art Association's Digital Photography Group on a scenic hiking photo adventure to Cataract Canyons, Marin County, on Saturday, February 19. Cataracts Canyon offers dramatic waterfalls and is covered with a thick verdant green moss with the effect of lush greenness with a number of different cascades on the creek to photograph. The canyon is very deep and quite dark- a good place for high dynamic range (HDR) photography. There will be areas of short steep hiking and the trail can be slippery if wet - walking sticks (spare pairs are available for use) and shoes with good treads are recommended. This adventure will be led by award-winning photographer Cooksey Talbott.
Meet at the FAA Gallery 10:30 a.m. This is a one hour, 60-mile drive and the trailhead has limited parking-volunteer drivers are needed who can help with a ride pool to reduce our parking needs. Cost of gas will be shared.
Wear your walking (or hiking) shoes and bring a hat, water bottles, coat, gloves, bag lunch, snacks, camera, lens hood, polarizer, tripod (optional) and lens kit. Participants are required to sign a Release of Liability for our fieldtrips. The event will be canceled in case of rain. For questions, call Cooksey at (510) 742-0548.
