DESCRIPTION: The Houston Cistern is one of Houston’s hidden gems that should be on your bucket list. Let’s explore this retired waterway with our camera. Located near the Sabine Street Bridge, the cistern is a retire reservior that has been opened to the public. This beautiful structure is an impressive 1.5 footballs fiels in size. Get ready to use your tripod to take pictures of this dimly lit relic using slow shutter speeds. We will have 30 minutes to walk the entire length of the Cistern. Be sure to arrive 30 minutes early so we can talk about camera settings a nd be fully prepared. The tour lasts only 30 minutes, so we are limited on the amount of time we are allotted to take our pictures. Read more

  1. Looking forward to Sunday’s excursion! Is there a note on what we should bring (other than our cameras and lenses)? I’m thinking a tripod would be good due to the low light, but there isn’t a lot of room inside the Cistern?

    1. Oh, Blurg. I just clicked “READ MORE” and see the list of suggested equipment. SORRY!

  2. Hi Lana!

    I would love to attend. If you have anyone drop out, please let me know.

  3. Lana if you have anyone drop out please let me know, I would love to attend

  4. Is this class full? It says “Out of Stock “and will not allow me to register.

    1. Hi Alma, unfortunately the excursion is sold out. If someone cancels their attendance I will let you know!

      1. Thanks Lana! Please do let me know.

  5. I am new to the area. Will you provide directions or tell me what description to use for directions? Thank you.

    1. The Address for the location is listed in the details of the Excursion. Which direction will you be coming from?

      1. Thank you. Didn’t see that before. I’ll map it for directions. Thank you again!

  6. Ok great see you then!

  7. Is it really from 9:30am to 10:30pm?

    1. The Excursion will last till 11am. In the past the tour was shorter, but it has now been extended to an hour in length. We will take 30 minutes beforehand to discuss camera settings. Between 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. is when we will photograph inside the cistern
