The 101PhotoClub is happy to choose this place to get together for sharing the interest and taking photo on the date of 07/11/2017. If you are in town that weekend, come and join the group for this photo shooting at Alviso Marina County Park .

Alviso Marina County Park has been a photographers' favorite place for either sunrise or sunset as it is a place in the south bay that has a very wide open space yet with water and mountain landscape.  It is located at the north end of San Jose where it meets the southern end of the San Francisco Bay. An easy google images search will allow you to find the interest of unique landscape that attracts many photographers to return many times and never being tired of taking photos.

We will meet together at the parking lot of the park; however, we should park the cars right outside the gate entrance as the park closed at sunset time. As we will stay late for the blue hour, we may be locked if we park our cars in the park lot. It is strongly recommended that we should park outside the park and then walk into the park and meet together at the parking lot.


Suggestion for things to prepare:
Camera, ND filters or graduated ND filters, Circular Polarizer Filter, sunglass, warm jacket, gloves, water, foods, flashlight (as we may stay later after dark).
