About This Walk
Please join us for our second Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk organized by the St. Vrain Photographic Society. You don’t need to be a member of our club to walk with us but if you would like to join, we would love to have you. Since we ‘walked’ in the city last year, this year we picked a more rural spot. Golden Ponds Park has a magnificent view of Longs Peak and the Front Range. The park spans 94 acres with 56 acres of water surface in four ponds. The park has 2.6 miles trails, an ADA-accessible fishing pier, two restrooms and nine picnic shelters. A 140-foot span bridge crosses the river just downstream of a concrete cascade; a reminder of the gravel and concrete operations that created the ponds. Wildlife of all kinds, especially waterfowl like great blue herons and cormorants, are easily viewed in the park. If the weather cooperates we should have an opportunity to catch great sunset shots of Longs Peak. If you are inclined, bring a tripod and waterproof footwear. There are some spots you can access the ponds / streams and an opportunity for long exposure waterfall shots. This will be a family friendly walk and you can stay on paved / gravel surfaces. Photographers of all abilities and with any type of equipment are welcome. It is scheduled rain or shine, so dress yourself and your equipment appropriately. If there is interest, once we meet at the end of the walk, we will organize an informal post walk get together at a nearby restaurant (TBD).
The St. Vrain Photo Society is one of the oldest photo clubs on the Front Range. Founded in 1973 by local photographers, the society has maintained a presence in the Longmont area ever since. The SVPS offers opportunities for photographers of all skills and interests to improve their knowledge and skills. Each month brings exciting speakers, fun field trips, and photo “Challenges” for our members to participate, share and learn. This outing has been organized by two members; Lynda Clayton and Todd Towell. We hope you will join us for this fun event.
See you tomorrowOctober 5th, 2018
Hopefully the weather will cooperate but come prepared for our ever changing Colorado fall weather patterns. This event is rain or shine. Remember some of the best shots are made in some of the worst conditions. Don’t forget to bring rain ‘coats’ for both both you and your gear. See you tomorrow!
Todd & Lynda
