Not to suddenly sound like the noob up in here, but what's this thread all about?

Harriman National Park (of which Bear Mountain is a part of) is practically in my back yard. Does DO stand for Dan's Outings?

I'm not sure it stands for anything (it might), but it is anytime forum members get together outside of the forum, be it for lunch or a meeting. Without knowing anything more, my guess would be it is when some of us get off our butts, actually go AFK and DO something (e.g. photography lessons).

What if it's night like the Aurora one? NO? Maybe just TO instead?

Aahh... I think Dan mentioned this in the photography master thread once, I was wondering what these outings were that he was referring to. I don't usually wander outside of the Tech section so I have no idea what goes on elsewhere. :)

Considering that this is going to be a sunset shoot, Bear Mountain is really on the wrong side of the river. The other side will have much better light and views.

That's why I'm thinking we should do Hudson Highlands State Park instead. It's on the other side of the river, a couple of minutes north of the Bear Mountain bridge (it's straight across of West Point).

We start with Indian Brooks Falls, which is a nice waterfall a short walk/hike from the parking lot. We'll be able to try different compositions and experiment with getting the silky water look with slower shutter speeds.

Some example pictures (the trees will likely not be this green this early in the season, though):



Better picture (non-embeddable)

For sunset we'll head over to the Constitution Marsh Sanctuary, which is right down the road. It's a large marsh and bird sanctuary overlooking the Hudson with a beautiful background of mountains. There are boardwalks throughout, and the sun will set right over the mountains and reflect in the water.

Sunset is at 7:49, but the trails close at 6. I've arranged special permission from the Audubon Society for our group to stay after hours and have the entire place to ourselves.

Some pictures:
