Great photo opportunity

Posted in Camping, General with tags , , , , , , , on September 26, 2011 by bayouphoto

If you are in the area around Natchez Oct. 14-16 then don’t miss this great opportunity.

Great Mississippi River balloon race

and a great place to camp just 10 miles away Natchez state park

I hope to see you there.

Best place to shoot the flights are

Morning: Launch site or if you prefer in flight  would be the Natchez national cemetary ( This would afford views with the river and bridge)

Afternoon would be the launch site and the River walk on the Vidalia, La. side. This would put the sun behind you each flight.

The Friday night fireworks would be great from the Vidalia river walk with the reflections in the river and the bridge included( If you go south of the bridge and shoot north)

I will be gone camping for the next 3 days without internet. I will be at Natchez state park just 10 miles north of Natchez, Ms. Since I will be close to Windsor ruins, and the ghost town of Rodney I hope to get some sunrise/sunset photos. This is hard to do when you have to drive over. If time permits I may explore, Port Gibson and Grand Gulf. I will be back Friday and will post my Thursday tutorial then. Till then have a great week and see you Friday.
