    Bradley's Head Amphitheatre and Lighthouse - 8TH OR 15TH MARCH

    Hi Guys. It's been awhile since our last shoot and I am struggling to come up with some new ideas. However, I have never been to Bradley's Head other than to visit the Zoo, so to my surprise, I discovered there was a lighthouse, military battlements and a great view of the Harbour Bridge, Fort Denison and the city.

    If we are lucky we may get a nice sunset but I thought we could meet around 4pm for socialising and then onto some sunset shots and then maybe some light painting of the lighthouse when it gets darker. Having never been there before I have no idea of access. Opening hours are from 6am - 8pm but as far as I could see (looking at the satellite map on google) there is no gate stopping access to the area.

    I suggest we bring the usual picnic stuff, light painting gear (It would be great to do some steel wool spinning but I would think there would be a total fire ban), torches, tripod, shutter release and of course your camera and lenses.

    Here is a link to a Wikipedia Information page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bradleys_Head

    IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN ATTENDING THIS MEET THEN PLEASE POST A REPLY IN THIS THREAD GIVING YOUR PREFERENCE FOR WHICH DAY YOU ARE ABLE TO ATTEND, 8TH OR 15TH MARCH AT 4PM ONWARDS.
    CAMERA: Nikon D800, Nikon D7000

    The 8th is my preferred date also Karen - it will give us a chance to discuss that studio shoot.

    Supervising Band Camp - been there, done that. Hope you get some sleep!

    I won't be there until around 5pm. I totally forgot that I have a 30 Year Nurses Reunion on from 12:30 - 4:30pm. Good news is the luncheon is at Lavendar Bay so I am three quarters the way there to Bradley's Head.

    Don't worry about a total fire ban. Reckon they're finished for Sydney this fire season. Get that steel wool out.

    Let's see how it pans out John - we have a couple of weeks yet and hopefully a few more will be interested.

    At this stage, I would be able to do the 15th but not the 8th. If the 15th, it would be my last AP meet before departing Sydney for the South Coast.
    Cheers

    I'll bring some steel wool but someone else can have the fun lighting it I'm still trying to live down my last effort.

    See you all there.

    I'm sorry, I really want to go out with you guys, but the 8th is my MIL's birthday and the 15th is an engagement party and possibly a photo shoot (mock wedding for practice) Hopefully I can join you in April, before I return to work.
