Professional photographer and teacher Nate Donovan will lead you on this unique walk to experience and photograph the sunrise over Edgewood County Park and Natural Preserve. You will learn tips and tricks for using your camera to capture the landscape under the unusual lighting of sunrise, while enjoying stunning views of Mt. Diablo, the Hamilton Range, the Bay, and the Santa Cruz Mountains.
This walk covers approximately 3 miles of trails of moderately sloping terrain. Bring water, a hat, sturdy shoes, and clothing appropriate to the early morning weather. This walk is geared to adults, but capable, attentive children 10 years and older are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Rain or thick cloud cover cancels.
In addition to your camera equipment, it is recommended that you bring a tripod.
