Butchart Gardens (round 2) (8:30 AM PDT)
The gardens are open once again, and we will take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to photograph the gardens without the crowds and tourist traffic.  We we make this a recurring outing for the rest of the summer, for club members to meet and shoot together.  The gardens change from week to week, as the summer progresses, so there will be new flowers and foliage to enjoy each time. There are new protocols in place, to protect health and safety for everyone, which we must follow.  Please see Butchart's website for more detailed info:  https://www.butchartgardens.com/covid-19-update/ Bring your landscape, macro or zoom lenses.  Monopods are ok, but the staff have emphasized that they are not allowing tripods at this time, to allow for good flow through the gardens (one-way paths). We will meet from 8:30am - 8:45 am in the Butchart Gardens main entrance lineup.  The gates open at 9:00am. There may be a wait depending on how many visitors are there, hence arriving a little early.  If anyone plans to arrive at a later time (ie: due to buses), please let us know, we'll have the group leader keep an eye out for you. Rates Effective June 1: Adult $30.00, Youth $15.00  OR Season Pass We’ll spend a few hours doing photography, and for those who are interested, we can meet again near the Gelato bar at 11:30am for socializing and desserts. Your group leader is Lorna Shaw
Alt Tuesday Field Trip: Galloping Goose Trail
Galloping Goose Trail Photoshoot:   The Galloping Goose Trail is a favorite location for cyclists, walkers and joggers.  It passes through forest, industrial and park settings, past shorelines, over bridges and under highways.  From wildlife to graffiti to people to landscape, anything is possible along the Trail.  I will start at Dupplin Road and go as far as the Blue Bridge, but you can use any part of the trail.  Choose your location and your time.  As usual, post your images to the gallery.  Some members now try to "meet" up to photograph in company, but be sure to continue the social distancing.  Covid-19 is still with us even though BC has done a good job of flattening the curve.  Since there is no fixed time or place, registration is not necessary.  I hope we will someday be able to resume a fixed time and lunch together afterward, but that will be sometime in the future.

Where the sea meets the shore: Alt Tuesday AM Field Trip (10:00 AM PDT)
Photoshoot: "Where the sea meets the shore." Victoria is almost surrounded by the sea.  The sea itself, the shore line, wildlife, people:  there is an abundance of possible subject matter here.  Pick any shore area you like.  Catch a crashing wave or a flying shore bird.  Try that ND lens for silky water effects.  Try night reflections, or day-time fun.  As long as you take your photos at the seashore, they count.  What does the shore mean to you? We are not yet meeting, though some members may choose to shoot together, still strictly complying with social distancing guidelines.  We hope that soon we will be able to return to more organized shoots followed by lunch conversations.  Don't forget to stay in touch by attending the Zoom meetings at 10:00 am every "alternate Tuesday".
