Time for Another Photo Walk

It may be cold outside, the temperatures so low that jets seem to split the sky as they fly overhead, the sound a clean hiss over a roar. But for the hard-core photographer, it takes more than a deep freeze to force the cameras indoors.

On Sunday, February 8, I am leading some Ottawa-area photogs on a nature walk to the Wallingford-Back Mine, near Mulgrave and Derry, Qu├ębec, just north of Buckingham. It's about a one-hour drive from downtown Ottawa, and I'm hoping that we can car pool.

Weather permitting (I'll reschedule the event if the roads are bad), we will meet at 9, drive to the site—we may have to hike about a kilometre from where we park—shoot for a couple of hours, and then celebrate with lunch and beer when we return to Ottawa, hopefully, by lunch.

Sound like fun? Sound like something you'd want to do?

At the time of writing this post, 90 percent of the tickets had been reserved (they're free). I am now opening more spots, but we will need more people willing to transport fellow photographers. I can take five photographers comfortably; six, if you're willing to get close to your neighbour. One other member has offered a ride.

I hope to see you on February 8. Let's hope that the temperature is in our favour.
