DESCRIPTION:
We are headed to Brazos Bend State Park to take pictures of the Birds and Alligators. This is perfect timing for nesting birds and active alligators. Make sure to bring your long telephoto lenses with you on this trip so you can stand at a distance to photography your subjects. A macro can also be helpful for any small detailed subjects you come across. You can also bring a monopod which will help you stabilize when you zoom in really far or get really close to the subject. Another suggestion would be to bring along your Circular Polarizer filter. Depending on the conditions you may use the Polarizer to remove water reflections or reduce washed out skies. We will meet at Brazos Bend State Park in the parking area near the restroom facility at Elm Lake. Since this is an outdoor event there is always a chance of bad weather. If we are rained out, this excursion will be rescheduled. Please arrive 20 minutes early so we can all talk about our camera settings.
State Park COVID Requirements: 
  1. You must wear a mask in the park
  2. You must purchase a Park Day Pass online before arrival. Day passes are limited so don’t wait!

    1. The State Park website shows all Day Passes are SOLD OUT. Whereas, this morning there were 81 passes available. I am waiting on a call back from the State Park to see if I can purchase passes for everyone. I will keep you all informed.

  3. Hi. I’d like to register for the Brazos Bend trip, but the ‘Get Tickets’ button is not working. Are you not taking reservations at this time?

    Thanks!
