Photograph tide pools at the Fitzgerald Marine Preserve
Submitted By Sachie Johns
Third in the Sunset Photo Walk series offered by The Fremont Art Association-Digital Photography Group (FAA-DPG), a visit to the Fitzgerald Marine Preserve provides photographers an opportunity for great marine shots. Award-winning photographers, Cooksey-Talbott and Jacline Deridder will lead this free photo outing on Saturday, January 21. Because of the extreme low tide to be expected around the time of our trip, there will be an abundance of tide pools and sea fauna to photograph. All levels welcome.
Low tide is expected around 3:30 p.m., sunset around 5 p.m. - we will try to be in position on the tidal flats around 3:30 p.m. Meet at The Fremont Art Centre, 37695 Niles Boulevard in Fremont (corner of J Street) at 2 p.m. and proceed as a group on a one hour drive to the Preserve. The cost of gas will be shared when car-pooling. Maps will be distributed at the meeting. You can also view the map at faadpg.ning.com.
Wear walking shoes and warm clothes as it will be chilly on the coast. Bring a hat, coat, water, snacks, camera, batteries, memory, lens hood, tripod, remote shutter release and lens kit. Participants must be over 18 and sign a Release of Liability for our field trips. For questions, call Cooksey at (510) 742-0548. For details, go to faadpg.ning.com.
