Well it appears that we are getting several photographers from Iowa joining APUG lately.

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in getting together for a day of shooting?

I could do it on any Sunday, or a Saturday if I have enough advanced notice to ask for the day off from work.


What do you think?

I would have to say #1 Lee ;)

I'm about 30 miles from the border. Does that count?

Cheers, Richard

I'm in Omaha. if it's a Saturday and centrally located ( Des Moines area) I would be in. It would have to be after mid-February for me as my oldest daughter has basketball on Saturdays untill then.

I'm about 3.5 hours SE of Des Moines according to Mapquest, but I'd be interested in anything you organize. Richard

I've never been to Iowa, but I'm curious, where does one go to photograph in Iowa? I may be driving through in June and don't want to miss anything.

I'm interested - I'm in Council Bluffs so a central to west location would work best for me

We have lots of lovely barns and countryside here! My favorites to photograph are barns, old buildings and farms...etc...

An "outing"? I thought all you Americans had a "don't ask, don't tell" policy! LOL.

An outing in Iowa? Let's see...drive north on Interstate 5 and turn right somewhere near Fresno and keep going...something like that??? Oh, I'd get lost any way. Have fun!!!

psst Sharon, you have to go all the way to Sacramento and turn right. Take 80 East. Have something along to keep you awake.

BTW ya'll need to go up to Coulter. many of the railway bridges in that part of Iowa were engineered by my Grandfather after he immigrated to this country. That is near Hampton, or if you really need a landmark, try Mason City.

Depending on when you choose to go, I might be able to make it. I have a bunch-o-prints to make for the local radio station. That has to be done first & I don't need any distractions from new negatives in the darkroom....

I am in Iowa. No car, though. And I'm in a tiny town. Ever heard of Webster City? :P

Having grown up in SW Iowa I'd like to suggest the Loess Hills along the Missouri River from near Hamburg to north of Council Bluffs. Take a look at this webpage for a description and information:

These hills have a unigue landscape and a lot of scenic areas, old barns, parks, etc. that are very interesting.

I'm in Washington, DC now or I'd join you.
