Upcoming Club Activities

  1. Theme
    The Sands of TimeCompleted Aug 7, 2018

    The challenge this month is to find an art photograph of sand and its patterns. We are fortunate to have beaches near by so this subject should be easy to find.

    I you can have a look at Sheen Watkins' article on "3 Essential Tips on How to Create Gorgeous Photographs with Sand" to get your creative juices flowing.

  2. Outing

    We will make a stop at the Alexandra Bridge Provincial Park before stopping at the Hell's Gate Airtram.


    Details:

    Alexandra Bridge Provincial Park is a small park centred around the site of the original Cariboo Wagon Road bridge over the Fraser River. The park was established in 1984. It provides both a rest stop and picnic facilities for travelers. This site has been a natural stop-over and crossing of the Fraser River since the area was first populated.   You can access the historic bridge from a trail through the day-use area.


    Logistics:

    Alexandra Bridge Provincial Park is located next to the Fraser River 40kms north of Hope, BC.  Hell's Gate is located at 43111 Trans Canada Highway.

    Let's assemble in the parking lot of the Alexandra Bridge Provincial Park at 0900am. We can shoot the bridge and surrounding area for an hour and then proceed to the Hells Gate Airtram. We can stop for a snack at the tram and then decide if the group wants to stop for lunch on the way back. 

    Transit Users: Sorry, but there arent any transit options to get out to the park and airtram.  I sent out the reminder email asking for members to re-confirm their attendance to this outing by no later than July 31st. RSVP to outings@nwphoto.org so I can assist anyone who doesn't have a ride and needs one.  My car fills up fast, so please do not wait until the last minute to let me know you need a ride.  Cars need to be on the road by no later than 7am because it does take at least 2 hours to get out to the bridge and we want to start this outing around 9am. 

    Hell's Gate Hours: 10am-5pm.   Admission prices: Adults: $24.00     Seniors: $22.00 

    There is a $2.00 discount coupon on the website to bring with you.  I will also have some copies of the coupon available when we gather.

      Keeping with tradition, our first meeting back in September will focus on Member Sharing.

      Share your photographic adventures since our last meeting in June; submit images that you shot in June, July and August. Members are encouraged to share stories of their photographic challenges, lessons, epiphanies, or questions that arose from a shoot.  Hopefully we can get some lively photographic discussion going.
