Leader: Nina Stavlund
Meet: Cassels Street, by the small parking lot just before the filtration plant
Let’s spend a couple of hours at Mud Lake, looking for anything we can photograph from Chickadees to magical winter scenes. We will hike portions of the main trail at Mud Lake, starting at Cassels Street where we will first look for geese and ducks to photograph. On the trail, we expect to see nuthatches, sparrows, squirrels and perhaps finches. We will also look for suitable scenery and landscape to photograph, including close-up pictures of nature covered in snow and of the snow itself. During this walk, Nina will point out the various photo-ops as we encounter them and will give hints and tips on how to do photography during the winter season. This event will suit those who would like to practice winter photography and would like to come out with like-minded people for a walk in the beautiful surroundings of Mud Lake and Britannia Conservation Area.
Bring the equipment you would like to use; DSLR and mirrorless cameras with various lenses, point & shoots or even just your cell phone. Bring a tripod if you don’t mind carrying it. Most importantly; dress in lots of layers, wear a toque, gloves and warm boots. Bring something hot to drink and a snack if you want. The walk will be postponed to the following day if the weather is severe (heavy snowfall, strong winds or minus 20).
