Change of Venue – Sunday Evening Outing October 20th

We had planned an outing for Sunday, October 20 at Exhibition Place to shoot the CNE buildings after dark. As it turns out, Exhibition Place won’t be illuminating its buildings this weekend. So that outing will have to be deferred.


Instead, those with a desire for some nighttime photography may be interested in the Pumpkins After Dark event in Milton. This event features more than 5,000 hand carved jack-o-lanterns and over 100 artisan-crafted pumpkin sculptures. Photography is encouraged.

Their web site is www.pumpkinsafterdark.com and the address is 8560 Tremaine Road, Milton.

Sunset is at 6:30 PM, with the blue hour following. Check out their web site to reserve tickets. 

Hope to see you there!
