    In that case maybe plan for the 15th, and in the event of anticipated bad weather, we'll have a back-up for the following weekend. I'll pencil it in.

    Where is the 'general area'?

    I would say the best place to meet would be in the parking area for the Furnaces. Personally I'd rather be there just after lunch. If someone close by could check out the area and find a decent place to eat maybe we could meet there?

    I'll try to check on it in the next few days. What kind of "decent place to eat are we thinking of? Burgers, Mexican, fast food, sea food, bar-b-que?

    The Sloss furnaces web site says :
    Hours of Operation: Tuesday through Saturday 10am to 4pm; Sunday 12 to 4pm; Closed Mondays
    Admission: Free!

    Please understand that it's out of sher ignorance (never been to Alabama much less 'the Furnaces) that I'm asking this but why was this location chosen? What sort of photographic opportunities will there be?

    Thanks for the education

    Hi Digi, take a look at the link in the comments above. A search engine under Sloss Furnaces will give info as well. For the most part it's an abandonded industrial site, on a huge scale. I've never been, and don't really have any specific expectations, which makes it a bit fun.

    As to the hours of operation, seems we'll want to shoot for no later than 1:00 to be inside and setting up to get 3 hours of shooting in. If we get in as they open I'd be OK with that too... So far as food goes, burgers, bbq, mexican, chinese, just something a step up from fast food works for me.
