Sunday, November 19 – Field Trip: Seattle Great Wheel, Seattle waterfront 6:30pm – 10pm
Join Trip Leader Al Koskie (206-697-1806) of Puget Sound Camera Club for an evening field trip to the Great Seattle Wheel on Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 6:30 pm. The Wheel is at 1301 Alaskan Way, Seattle 98101 on Pier 57 near the Seattle Aquarium. (See Google or other internet maps for directions.).
The field trip will go from 6:30 pm to about 10 pm with a mid-way break for snacks. (There are several restaurants on Pier 57.)
There is on-street metered parking or parking lots across the street.
We will meet by the tables, which are located to the right of the base of the ramp that leads up to the Wheel.
We will be shooting after dark and photographic equipment you may want to have includes 24-105 mm or 16-35 mm lenses for wide shots of the wheel or longer lenses for close-up detail shots. Also a tripod and remote shutter release for long exposures and a “rain coat” for camera. Dress very warmly and prepare for rain and wind.

Monday, December 4 – Field Trip: Garden d’Lights at the Bellevue Botanical Garden 6pm – 8pm
Join Bob Joiner and the Puget Sound Camera Club for a beautiful evening of photographing the holiday lights at the Bellevue Botanical Garden. We will be photographing a dazzling display of one half a million lights creating a blossoming winter wonderland. More information can be found at https://gardendlights.org.
It may rain, so we can photograph the lighting displays and perhaps reflections on wet surfaces. Bring a “raincoat” for your camera. Tripods are allowed, although they may a tripping hazard if legs are open too far. Reflective tape (available at Fred Meyer, etc) can help make tripod legs more visible to others. Correct exposure can be an enjoyable challenge and bracketing exposures may be useful.
This is a free admission night, but there is a $5 charge for the main garden parking (cash only). There is additional free parking at nearby Wilburton Hill Park at the intersection of 124th and Main St. and it is an easy walk down 124th St to the Garden. No parking is allowed across Main St.
