O.K. I would like to announce that we are going to have an outing on the Delmarva Peninsula on Saturday, April 22nd (Rain date will be the 29th). I have found that location could vary due to interest so sound off all who are interested and I will have the thing set up by April 1st. I shoot 35mm but all formats are welcome. A multi-formatted outing would be very interesting and educational in and of itself. Post on this thread your interest, your preferred format, your hometown (for time constraint considerations), your points of interest, if you can trek a bit or if you need to stick close to the roads, prefered subject matter, also if you would consider a two dayer. Things of the nature that would allow me to plan something that would be enjoyable by all. I will contact everybody who wishes to attend of plans by March 25th for approval and finalized plans by the 1st. Why April? No tourists yet and the mosquito's have Harleys after June 1st. If we have a good enough turn out, perhaps we can plan something for October. Thank you for viewing this post.

I'd be interested. Most likely bringing the 4x5. I'm fairly mobile, don't need to be tied to within 100 feet of a road/parking lot.

I'm in and mobility is not a problem.
Hometown is Coatesville, PA but a drive is not a problem.
Medium format
I am not very familiar with the Delmarva Peninsula so I would be looking for suggestions with regard to specific locations. Pretty much open to anything.

Sorry for neglecting to enter the pertinant info:

4x5 most likely.
Wilmington
Anything really - some of the marshes around have nice old shipyards which may be of interest (I usually think of that when I think Delmarva)
I can go anywhere with the camera

Anything which reflects light
I'm good for approximately 3 miles each way. Any farther than that and I'll downsize to 4 x 5.

So far I'm thinking wildlife refuge? Ideas?

That could work. I think that people from out of the area may get a kick out of the gun towers @ Cape Henelopen. On the other hand, sand + cameras isn't the best combo.

I'd be up for the towers at Cape Henlopen, and/or wandering around Lewes. I don't mind the wildlife refuge as long as wildlife is not the primary subject matter. Kinda hard to photograph birds with a 4x5.

Cape Henlopen sounds great to me. It is a wonderful location.

Then you guys are in luck. I work with "Lt." Mike Rogers of the 261st coastal artillery battaion reenacters with DENREC at Fort Miles in Cape Henlopen State Park and they are having their big everybod- show-up-in-uniform weekend on the 29th of April. Goose pimples yet? When I get a schedule I will forward it to all of you. They might even fire the new 12-incher they just finally got installed. Or maybe if you would rather we might wrangle a private tour on the 22nd or any other weekend for that matter by Mike.

Wow...That is excellent ! I'm really looking forward to this....

I'd vote for the private tour the weekend before the big demo. Having crowds of un-affiliated tourists around makes for some difficult photos if you don't want tourists in them, especially for us folks who are using tripod-dependent cameras.

I asked about that on the 22nd and he said they will be doing preparations and that's not a go then.

Your personal mobilityI have a car that'll get me to a parking lot and I have legs that will walk me pretty much anywhere from there ;)

I assume you'll give us the time, rendez-vous point and itenerary on the 25th?

I will contact everybody who wishes to attend of plans by March 25th for approval and finalized plans by the 1st.My suggestion is to post all the details in this thread instead of contacting everyone personally. This way, people who would like to come at the last minute will know where to go and what's going on.

Just a suggestion.
