    Sydney meets xmas bbq - sunday 18 december 2011

    Can you believe that Christmas is upon us already.

    This year the plan is to have a CHRISTMAS BBQ at BICENTENNIAL PARK, HOMEBUSH on SUNDAY 18 DECEMBER 2011. It is fairly central to everyone and offers a variety of photo opportunities including sculptures, macro and birding, shipwreck, wetlands with a boardwalk, water fountains and spouts, viewing tower, historic Newington Armory, Olympic Cauldron, skate park and the list goes on. There is also a couple of temporary public art displays on until December 31.
    We could make it an afternoon meet, have our barbie, take our shots at whatever takes your fancy and then drive up to the area that has the temporary art displays and the Cauldron and get some night time pics.

    PLEASE POST IN THIS THREAD IF YOU ARE INTENDING TO COME ALONG - ANY AP MEMBER IS WELCOMED TO ATTEND. We would like to lock in this date ASAP, thus the advanced notice. Please feel free to leave any comments or suggestions.

    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.

    Avoid shooting with a 12 gauge shotgun. Use a Canon instead.

    How does 1:30 - 2pm sound? We can then have our BBQ straight away which will give us time to get the better afternoon light. I think the park closes at sunset so we can then head on up to the Cauldron and the featured displays. I haven't worked out yet where a good meeting place will be - it's been ages since I have been to this park. Any suggestions?

    Lyn and i will be a bit late.
    i have picked up another Bar Mirtzvah to shoot (paid one).
    It does't finish till about 2.00, so by the time i pick up the boss and get out there it may be 3.30 or so.
    I wil give Narelle or Peter a call as we get close to see where you all are

    Hi Narelle, there will be four of us and we might not be there for 1.30 as we'll be in the city during the morning.
    If you go to this map you can uncheck/check amenities on the right hand side so you can see where different BBQs are. As there are a few in the vicinity of the bike hire place/lilies on the park so that may be a good place to meet.

    Although I haven't been to this part of the park http://www.sydneyolympicpark.com.au/...ewing_platform it is meant to offer good views and I've seen some lovely photos of this at dusk too.

    Hope that helps. There's many photographic opportunities in the area

    Hi all, I might not get there until 4pm as Lesley is working until 3pm. As there seem to be quite a few that cannot make the early start, how about a later start and then late afternoon feed and then maybe go around to the shipwrecks in Homebush Bay for dusk?
