May 21 Field Trip to Scott's Run Nature Preserve (9:00 AM EDT)
May 21 Field Trip to Scott's Run Nature Preserve at 7400 Georgetown Pike, McLean (http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/scottsrun/). There are multiple hiking trails in the park, but we will plan to do the most direct hike from the parking lot at the intersection of Swinks Mill Road and Georgetown Pike directly to the waterfall overlook area via the the Potomac Heritage Trail - http://www.funinfairfaxva.com/scotts-run-loop-hike-on-the-potomac-heritage-trail/.  It is a short moderate level hike (about 2 miles out and back) with some elevation change and rocky trails; there are more difficult trails in the park for the more ambitious. This is a great opportunity to photograph late blooming spring flowers and the Scott's Run waterfall, so bring your polarizing or neutral density filters and tripod if you want to get those silky long exposure water shots.  We will plan to meet at 9:00am in the parking lot since this is a popular spot on weekends and the parking can get crowded.  Please RSVP with cell phone number and email. delete
Field Trip Forum Meeting (7:30 PM EDT)
It is time for the annual Field trip forum this month at the May 24th meeting.  Everyone is invited! Even if you did not make a field trip this year, we would love your feedback and you will get to virtually visit all of the field trip locations!  If you did attend a field trip(s), please plan to submit up to three photos per field trip you attended.  This is NOT a competition; however, we would like to have members give the photographers feedback, so we would like to limit the number of photos presented.  So, please choose your best photos and/or ones where you would like constructive feedback.   See email for more detail. delete
