This is a special sunrise trip to Jasper Ridge offered by fellow club member Dan Quinn. Photographically this trip should be great for lovely oak tree landscapes, potential wildflowers, and possible wildlife.

Location: Jasper Ridge Biological Reserve

Sunday, May 6, was chosen because it is one day past full moon, the sun rises at 6:07 am, and the almost-full moon sets at 6:24 am. This will provide great opportunities to photograph the sunrise and the moonset. We will start at the Goya gate and work our way into the preserve. The whole trip should take 2 to 3 hours with the option for a post shoot breakfast!

Sunday, May 6, is one day past full moon, the sun rises at 6:07 am, and the almost-full moon sets at 6:24 am.

Hard rain will cancel.
