Adventure at the Pinnacles

April's free photography event will take place at the Pinnacles National Monument. Seize your camera and the day; join the Fremont Art Associations' (FAA) Photography Group for a full day field trip on Saturday, April 18 at this stunning site. The Pinnacles are a craggy volcanic formation located on the tectonic plate boundary. Spring is the optimal time to visit, the temperature will be pleasant and the wildflowers blooming! This program is directed by renowned local photographer Ralph Cooksey-Talbott.

The drive will take approximately 2 hours so please arrive by 9 a.m. at the FAA's Gallery located at 37659 Niles Blvd., Fremont.

Please bring your camera, tripod, water bottle, lunch, hat and walking shoes. The group will car pool and share the cost of gas and the $5.00 park admission fee. Drivers are needed for this 200 mile round trip adventure. The group will have dinner at a restaurant along the route.

The Third Saturday group meets at the FAA gallery for a variety of photographic educational opportunities and field trips. This is a free activity sponsored by the FAA. If you enjoy having fun with photography please join in for this ongoing program of classes and fieldtrips. Join the Yahoo group "FAADPG" for the most current information on their activities.

Ralph Cooksey-Talbott has been working as a photographer since 1972 when he moved to California from Michigan. During the 1970's he studied under Ansel Adams in Yosemite. Adams published one of his photographs in the portfolio section of his book "Polaroid Technique Manual". Cooksey also studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and the San Francisco Academy of Art. He has lectured in photography at the U.C. Berkeley Extension, Studio One in Oakland and at Santa Barbara City College.
