2016 Nov. 5: Field Trip – Chesapeake Wildlife Heritage

Our Saturday, November 5 our club  field trip is to a wildlife habitat located in Chester, MD about 40 minutes from Severna Park. My work colleague and her ecologist husband care for and reside on the property, living  in a home built in the 1600s.  Today my husband and I went to scout out the property for photo opportunities which include:

  • Waterfowl (especially at sunrise and sunset) – have waterfowl blinds
  • Ponds
  • At least 2 eagle nest on the property, we saw an eagle this morning
  • Beaver dam – To get a good shot will need a zoom
  • Old wooden working barn that we can shoot inside of – would work well with HDR photography. Only equipment in the barn, no animals
  • Small forest area  – although the leaves will be down in Nov
  • Fields – No blooming in Nov (they have sunflower fields which were in bloom last week)
  • Some old rusty farm equipment (decay shots)

The best time to shoot the wildfowl is either sunrise or sunset. I would recommend sunrise because of the lack of light after sun fall.

They have kindly requested that they have some copies of the photographs to post on their website.

Location: Chester, off of Parsons Road – Workman’s Hazard Road

Distance from Severna Park: 40 minutes
