    Sydney christmas meet - saturday 8 december

    Hi all - I can't believe how quick the year has gone and it's time for our Christmas Meet. We haven't had many meets this year and attendance has dropped off a little (probably because everyone is so busy), so it would be great to end the year off with a "BANG" .....well maybe not a bang but at least some pretty lights.

    We intend to hold our Christmas meet at Middle Harbour to do some more light painting. You can find out more information about the area here: http://www.sydney.com/destinations/s...rk-middle-head

    The intention is to meet around 3pm. You will need to bring your own food, chairs and drink for an evening meal.
    Photo opportunities will include the fortifications and panoramic views. If all goes well we may even be able to organise a model and combine this meet with a portrait shoot. Later on when the sun goes down we will be able to light paint some of the fortifications.

    This thread is to give you advanced warning of the date so that you can note it in your diaries. I will post more details closer to the time. By all means please post your intention to come (then I can chase you up later).

    If you have any suggestions for other ideas or know of someone that would be willing to model for us then please don't be shy and have your say.

    We had a ball at our last light painting meet so it would be great to see a good turnout. I know it gets very busy around this time of the year but I would urge any Sydney AP member to come along for a great time both socially and photographically.

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    Should be OK for this date. Not clear on the exact location though Narelle. I presume we're not meeting in the part of the park which closes at sunset? I'll await more info.

    This was Peter's idea so he may come forward with a bit more info. I think the idea is that we park our cars outside of the gates so we don't get parked in.

    Re: Sydney christmas meet - saturday 8 december

    Parking is outside the boom gate in the car parks and regretfully paid parking (thanks to the Sydney Harbour Forshore Authority).

    Technically the park is sunrise to sunset so I guess there is a chance we may be asked to leave but I have seen a lot of night photos from there. The situation is the same in most of the National Parks and I have done out of hours stuff in South Head, North Head and Neilson Parks.

    Im looking at my Diary, grandkids not down for 2 days after that. Thing is I have a clue where this is and I can only travel by train.
    Would hate to miss a train back to Wollongong.

    Chatted to Jo (Silkdiver). Jo and Richard are likely candidates subject to Jo's shift.

    Warren - Middle head is in the Mosman/Balmoral area. You could always just come for the afternoon and not stay for the night time light painting. I can understand your predicament with transport though.

    I'm a possible, however we'll have only just moved into our new house the day before, so it will be very dependent on my unpacking skills ! Pencil me in at the moment, might have to be a last minute judgement call.

    Looked at some accommodation for that night and everything is so expensive for that weekend and its hard to find anything priced at a reasonable rate.

    What else is on in Sydney that weekend? Must be something popular.
