October 26 – Field Trip – Gatzke Orchards

Photograph Fall Colours – Led by Carly Slater

Exclusive access for our group to wander around the grounds, orchards, and outbuildings of this local gem! Be prepared to experience about a billion opportunities for photographic capture.

Note – Both members and non-members (or soon to be new club members as I like to think of you) are welcome to attend. Please feel free to share this event, spread the word, and bring a photo buddy along. 🙂

Colour is really starting to change in the orchards, so this should be a wonderful opportunity to capture it in it’s glory.

Please note to dress for the weather, we will only cancel/postpone the event if the weather is really wet and ugly. This includes bringing whatever you need to ensure your equipment stays safe and dry as well as your person.

There will be opportunities to capture everything from landscapes, macros, to still life and maybe even some animals on this tour. There are chickens on site last time I looked, and loads of old farm tractors, farming implements, and neat old rustic buildings, structures, vines and lots of fruit trees. This orchard is also just above the isthmus between Wood and Kal lake, so if you want to capture anything on the lake you are only steps away.

Depending on what you want to capture, I would suggest to bring: (if you have these items available to you): camera, tripod, a range of lenses to capture different focal lengths of subject matter, any filters you may want to bring like a polarizer to enhance colours, and as always a good attitude!

I believe we will have a washroom facility accessible to us, but please note the market is closed for the season.

All Mr. Gatzke has requested in return for our access is that we share any awesome images we capture with him. If you snag a really good one, and don’t mind sharing it, please email him at alan.gatzke@gmail.com
