To fellow Members and interested photographers:
The weather promises to be mainly sunny on Saturday, November 4th with seasonal temperatures of around 11 degrees Celsius. Low tide is at 3:02 p.m., sunset at 5:53 p.m.
Due to this I believe getting there at about 11:00 a.m. will be ample time for exploring the beach and the surrounding area, and then photographing low tide mid- afternoon. It may be of interest for photographers attending, to remain for the sunset at 5:53 p.m. and as there is a full moon on that evening, with a moon rise at 6:42 p.m.
Toward this…. I’d suggest to photographers to bring some food/ water …. lunch or munchies not only for the noon hour but also for the evening meal. There are picnic tables in the park by the park centre.
Meeting Place: Tim Horton Parking, lot 84 Main St. Dartmouth N.S. on Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. We shall leave Tim Horton at 10:15 a.m. sharp and proceed to Clam Harbour Provincial Park.
For those familiar with Clam Harbour Provincial Park.. please proceed there on your own.
By taking Hwy. 7 to Webbers’ Esso Station turn off to Clam Harbour Beach/Provincial Park. This is about a 45 minute drive. There is plenty of parking on the road before the gate or you can proceed to the Park’s parking lot.
DO dress accordingly…. rubber boots are always useful.
I will have release forms that must be signed either at Tim Hortons or at the Provincial Park before the excursion.
In the unlikely event that it should rain on Saturday we shall advise via email and proceed to do this on the following day November 5th.
Hope to see you,
