About This Walk
THE CONTEST IS OPEN Till October 14, 2023 at 11:59 pm. To enter your photo into the contest for our group and the worldwide photo contest, use the Contest tab that should appear when you log into our walk website. I will choose the winning photo for our group, and the whole world will choose the People’s Choice winner!
NEW UPDATE! I’m giving people a second chance to meet tonight, though last minute, if they want to be on this photowalk. The rain seems to be letting up. If you do go, please avoid flooded areas.
There will be no formal route, but I wanted people to have a chance of getting out there and possibly even catching a sunset at the docks. I already lifted the time restriction so people can walk whenever they feel safe. Please note: the walk leader will not be held responsible for any personal injury or property damage that happens to or by walkers! So if you go, you agree to accept 1oo% of responsibility and risk.
Welcome to our walk through beautiful Port Washington/Baxter Estates/North Port Washington! We will no longer gather for a group photo.
Our walk will cover the waterfront areas of these communities and some of lovely Main Street in Port Washington. People are also free to take photos anywhere they like either in the town with our group or on their own. You can walk, drive, or a combination, and you don’t have to be there the full 2 hours to enter our contest. However, only photos taken within the covered area on October 7 will be eligible to compete in the free, optional contest on the Scott Kelby site. I have led walks for many years and run the Long Island Photowalkers group on Facebook
To connect with other photographers on this walk, please join our group on Facebook, Long Island PhotoWalkers, found at this link: Long Island PhotoWalkers | Facebook

By responding to this event or attending, you agree to hold harmless the event organizers of any injuries or damages, both accidental or intentional. incurred during the event.
Most of this walk is on level ground, though there are some hilly areas that you may want to drive to, such as around Main Street. Wear comfortable shoes, bring weather appropriate gear, clothing and water. Travel light to make it more enjoyable. Some may want to park and drive between locations on the walk – that’s up to you. You can also photograph the LIRR train station and inside stores – though please always ask for permission before doing so. A great spot for a photo is the balcony of the library, which has a view down Main Street to the harbor. Hope you all enjoy!
