UPCOMING TWO NHCC FIELD TRIPS - SAVE THE DATES!

It’s time to get out and take some photos!

 

#1 FIELD TRIP

DATE:  Monday, June 22 @ 6:30 pm (Rain date, Monday, June 29)

This is a 2-part early evening/night photography session, so bring your tripod and shutter release cable.

 

PLACE:  Milford, CT – beaches and downtown center, duck pond and waterfall

 

MEET:  Trubee-Doolittle Park, 37 Hawley Avenue, Milford

              This is a small, grass park right on Woodmont Beach.

(It’s one big square block, more like a parklet.)

 

 

 

1st stop – Woodmont Beach 

This residential area has a long, public beach along Beach Avenue with many interesting views of both residential architecture and coastline to photograph.

 

There is limited parking near the park, but plenty down the nearby streets within the general area.

 

2nd stop – Downtown Milford

This is a nighttime photo extravaganza! Downtown Milford has a beautiful, long green with storefronts, restaurants and businesses on either side.  There are old town buildings, a waterfall, a harbor and waterfront walkway.

 

Parking is available all throughout the downtown and around the green and park.


Meet in front of the old Town Hall, 120 River St. (Waterfall is behind this building.)

 

#2 FIELD TRIP

DATE:  Sunday, July 19 @ 9:30 am

 

PLACE:  Cedar Hill Cemetery, 453 Fairfield Avenue, Hartford, CT

 

MEET: Information booth near entrance

 

Hartford’s nationally recognized Cedar Hill Cemetery was established in 1864 and comprises 270 acres with more than 320,000 graves and memorials. Its reputation as a premiere example of the American “rural” cemetery is enhanced by its historic landscape, finely sculpted monuments and natural resources. The Cemetery’s landscape and “ornamental foreground” of ponds and meadows is unique in New England cemetery design.

 

Limited Parking is available onsite. We will be driving through the grounds and stopping for photos.

 

 

 

PLEASE NOTE:

All safety guidelines will be followed – Keeping 6 ft. apart and wearing masks.  

 

-There will be no inside passenger car pooling, but individual cars may follow one another to the locations if they wish.

-Bring snack/lunch/dinner and non-alcoholic drinks for yourself.

-Comfort stops may be grocery stores or open gas stations which will be announced closer to the time.
