Hillcrest Camera Club - Outing - Monteseel - 29 June 2014

Hi everyone

1. Outing - Monteseel Sunrise with Carl Smorenburg
Date: Sat 29th June 2014
Time: 5.30am

It is that time of the year when we can shoot sunrises at a decent time. The spot we are shooting from overlooks the Valley of 1000 Hills, and is very picturesque, and will make for beautiful landscapes.

WARNING: This is a dangerous area because of the sheer drop off of the cliffs. 

  • The area that we are shooting is on the side of a cliff, and you are asked to be extra careful!
  • We will be shooting in darkness at first, so bring a torch.
  • You are asked to wear appropriate shoes (takkies, hiking boots - not sandals or heels).
  • Wear warm clothing, cover up hands, ears, heads as the wind can be cold.
