Another Sunrise Shoot on Lake Lanier
March 19 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am
Tidwell Park Boat Ramp on Lake Lanier will be our second location to photograph sunrise on Lake Lanier with Russell Adams. On Saturday, March 19, the nearest land in line with the sunrise is 7 miles away, offering a beautiful view of sunrise over the lake.
Sunrise on March 19 is at 7:42 AM, so we will meet in the parking lot at Tidwell Park Boat Ramp at 7:00 and plan to be in place and ready for blue hour at 7:10.
Bring a flashlight or headlamp.
Directions: Take GA 400 North to exit 16, Pilgrim Mill Road. Turn right on Pilgrim Mill Road and follow the road for approximately 4 miles to the park.
Google Maps and Apple Maps will both provide directions if you enter “Tidwell Park Boat Ramp.”
Photography equipment that may be useful: a short telephoto lens, a wide angle lens, a tripod, a circular polarizing filter, and a neutral density filter.
Parking fee – $5.00 debit/credit card ONLY. This fee may only apply to launching a boat, but bring a card just in case.
Restrooms are available at the park, but may be locked when we arrive. Plan accordingly.
Bring water, comfortable walking/hiking shoes that can get muddy, insect repellent, and a flashlight or headlamp.
Group size: 20
NOTE: This event may be cancelled or rescheduled due to weather. Partly cloudy skies make magnificent sunrises – pouring rain, not so much. Please check for a message before bedtime on Friday evening. If weather looks very questionable and you haven’t heard anything by Friday evening, check again on Saturday morning before leaving home. We will send a message through Meetup and post in the comments section.
