Photowalking around The Lough

What: Photowalk.
When: Sunday March 9th at 3pm.
Where: The Lough in Cork City. (Google Map)
Who: Anyone with any sort of camera.

On Sunday March 9th, we’ll visit The Lough in Cork City on a photowalk around the lake. Of course it’s also a social occasion when we can swap camera tips and photography advice. Sunday is a slow day for many people so let’s aim to be there at 3pm near the bird feeding (south) end of the lake. Weather permitting, that gives us plenty of light for about 3 hours, and if people are still around later, sunsets over The Lough can be quite stunning. Bring family and friends too if you like, but remind them that they will probably be photographed and their photos may end up online. If you bring a dog, remember that they must be kept on a lead.

Nearby is the Hawthorn Bar. It’s literally right next to the lake and a nice place to go for a drink or a bite to eat.

All are welcome to come. It doesn’t matter what type of camera you have, or how good or bad you think you are. Photowalking is the perfect opportunity to practice and improve your photography and chat with like minded individuals. The Wikipedia page on photowalking has a good overview of what it’s all about:

Photowalking is the act of walking with a camera for the main purpose of taking pictures of things you may find interesting.

So far I have confirmed that Ryan and Donal will go, and sort of confirmed that David will be there. David was kind enough to announce the walk at the last meeting of Mallow Camera Club so I hope that a few members will participate.

I would be very happy if 5 or 6 people showed up. If there are more that’s even better. We’ll have plenty to talk about and there is so much to photograph you’ll be kept busy. Leave a comment on this post if you’re interested in going or have any questions!

If you’ve never been to The Lough, here are a few links that may interest you:

Don’t forget, if you’re in Dublin this weekend, Redmum is organising an Irish Blog Awards Photowalk on Saturday. I won’t be there but it should be fun to photowalk through Dublin City Centre!

    Oh no! I hope it’s not intimidating! It’s only going to be a few photographers going for a walk!

    I’m hoping to make it.

    Herself has never been there and I’ve been on and on to her about how I used to live near the Lough.

    Will take 40 mins to get there and 40 mins home but it’s close to himself’s feeding time so might work out.

    I gather that I will know ye because ye will be the lads with the cameras? I’ll probably be parking neat the Hawthorn.

    Hopefully I’ll be able to make it along as well. I’m climbing Carrantuohill tomorrow so if I can still walk Sunday I’ll be there!

    Great! Good luck tomorrow Latchiko, if you’re not there on Sunday we’ll know you’ll be nursing the blisters on your feet!

    According to http://www.met.ie/ right now, Sunday should be nice enough, although it’ll be cool enough. Make sure you’re well insulated!
