Join the Fremont Art Association's Digital Photography Group (FAA-DPG) on a 3-mile photo hike through Rock City, Mt. Diablo State Park (near Clayton) on Saturday, July 16. Led by award-winning photographer Jacline Deridder, participants will capture images of magnificent sedimentary rock formations and breath-taking views. The ability to hike three miles on dirt trails and hills while carrying camera gear and food supplies is necessary.
We will meet at the FAA Gallery, located at 37659 Niles Blvd. in Fremont, at 12 noon and proceed as a group. Wear your walking or hiking shoes and bring a hat, water, jacket, lunch, snacks, camera, batteries, memory, lens hood, polarizer, tripod (optional), and lens kit. Participants are required to sign a Release of Liability for the field trips.
