Lemoine’s Point Outing Summary
Last Saturday morning January 12th, about 10 KPC members stepped out of their warm cars into the FREEZING cold. They were the 8:00 a.m. diehards ready for a morning of photography at Lemoine’s Point. Fortunately, the day was beautiful – blue sky and fluffy white clouds – an incredible background for shooting! The hope was to capture nature shots – birds (Bluejays, Chickadees, Nuthatches, Woodpeckers etc. ) and animals (squirrels, chipmunks, deer etc.), however, they were few and far between (They probably stayed home in the warm comfort of their nest or dens!). Instead, people captured the light on ice, trees, grasses, benches and other intriguing sights. Photos of fellow photographers or hikers’ dogs were also taken. After an hour and a half the weather had started to freeze peoples’ extremities, so everyone gathered in the warmth of Tim Hortons to share their images and talk shop. Many commented on how wonderful it had been to spend the morning with their camera sharing their experiences and ideas with others.
