Albion Basin Photowalk August 1

by Ann Torrence

Albion Basin

I will be leading a dawn Photowalk at Albion Basin on August 1. My plan is to meet at the Catherine Pass parking area at 5:15 am. (Yes, you read that right.)

Nautical twilight is when we need to be working out compositions, to be ready for things to start to color up by civil twilight. If you want to do a wide angle composition, it can take a while to find just the right foreground, and we will have to work together to stay out of each other's shots.

Nautical Twilight: 5:15am
Civil Twilight: 5:53am
Sunrise: 6:23am

Then after sunrise, as the sun races across the valley, you can track with it to do flower portraits, or trundle up toward Secret Lake (about a 1 mile hike). Possibility to see moose, perhaps closer than you'd like.

On the bright side, a 5:15 launch means we won't have to deal with traffic at the entry point.
