Save the Date - Norris Camp Outing to Photograph Spring Flowers

When: June 3rd - 4th

Where: Norris Camp

What: Photographing Spring Orchids

Who: Interested intrepid travelers and photographers

We have tentatively scheduled accommodations at the Norris Camp for up to 10 individuals (and as many tenters and campers who want to go).  Saturday, we will travel 300 miles north (six hours) and probably arrive in time for a late afternoon shoot.  If the weather cooperates we might try some night time photography, star trails, light painting etc.   The next morning, we will be out early to capture the golden hour light.  Our primary goal will be to photograph wild spring orchids such as: 

Showy Lady's Slipper (MN State Flower)
Greater and Lesser Yellow Lady's Slipper
Pink Lady's Slipper (Moccasin Flower, Stemless Lady's Slipper)
Picture Plants

It might be too late to capture Calypsos and Ram's Head Orchids but maybe we will luck out.   

Additional details will be discussed at the May 6th meeting.

March 2017 Meeting Notes

The March meeting was chaired by President Geri Fenton. 

A big Welcome! to:
  •       Baby Henry!!
  •       Luann – from East Bethel “found” by John Anderson.  Luann likes to photograph nature, landscape, birds, etc.  
  •       Jane – Mark’s wife.  Jane is big help to Mark’s photography because she is a good spotter and understands animal behaviors


March Presenter:  Judy’s friend, Steve Schmalowsky gave a lively, entertaining, and informative presentation and showed some great local nature images.  Steve tries to MAKE (vs take) pictures, getting it correct in camera because he’s not a big fan of post-processing.  He got into digital 6-7 years ago and loves that it is so much less expensive.  He relies on the histogram on the back of the camera to ensure good exposure in camera.  He usually shoots alone, and loves nothing better than a good landscape to photograph, especially if there is mist or fog present.  Steve shoots in jpg on manual settings.  For his lovely eagle images, he keeps the shutter speed at 1000 and then constantly adjusts the aperture.

Steve advised us to shoot the photograph we think we want, and then take a step to the left and then right to get a different perspective, which means a different image.  He also recommends going back to the same location several times in order to learn the best time of day for shooting – weather it is to get the best light or get the best animal activity.

Steve suggested several local sites for nature photos, including Moyer Park, Richardson Nature Center, Cedar Avenue Bridge, and Black Dog Road.  He showed many photos, including:
  •  Juvenile Bald Eagle and crow series with the crow steeling a fish
  •  Beautiful landscape scenes from Banff, Jasper, Glacier, Waterton, and the Grand Canyon.
  • A bull moose!
  • Eagles ad egrets in flight
  • Dew-covered spider web
  • Deer silhouette running in a field
  • White deer from Father Hennepin
Steve credits God for the beauty in nature that let’s Steve take such great images, and tries to keep out people or anything that would show a human touch. 

Challenge topic for February was “Current Cityscapes”.  Many great photos as well as several from the Broadway Bridge outing in February.  The April topic is “Step Out of your Comfort Zone” – any subject is fine, but make it something different than what you usually do.  To upload your photos to Google Photos albums, click on the link you received in your email, then click the box with the plus sign on the upper right side, then click "select from computer".  Please re-size files to 500kb or smaller before uploading.  There is a limit of 5 photos per person.

Nature Notes from Krista Jensen – FSSP Lead Park Naturalist
How many turkeys did you see on your last visit to Fort Snelling State Park? Could you tell the difference between the males (adult males are called toms and juveniles are jakes) and the females (adults females are called hens and juveniles are jennies). It’s easy to tell which turkeys are male when they’re displaying (showing off their tail feathers) but when they’re not strutting around it can be a little more difficult. The males have very colorful pink and red bald heads while females are a muted greyish blue bald head. You can also look for a beard on the males! There beard is a plume of feathers hanging from their chests (it reminds me of a neck tie). So, look for these two characteristics the next time you’re in the park and you may start to notice some other differences between males and females too!
Volunteer Opportunities
Send me an email at Krista.Jensen@state.mn.us if you are interested, or what more information, about any of these opportunities.

Falloween at William O'Brien State Park

This past weekend we attended our 6th Falloween Campground party at William O'Brien State Park A fun time was had by all. The campsite decoration competition has really stepped up from 6 years ago so it was a better and more inspiring than in previous years.

Our theme this year was BOOooo Zoo.  That is an aquarium in the center with Dory as the star and the zookeepers are on both end of the photo.




Doug and my grandnephew got a little batty during the chaos of set up.

Here are a few more photos of our site.

Who knew Yoda was so cute without his makeup!
William O'Brien State Park is 10 miles north of Stillwater so convenient for most residents of the Twin Cities. It's usually hard to get into the campgrounds during the summer but it's worth a try.  It a great place to camp on the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway.  Even if you can't get a campsite visit the park any time of the year.  There are a number of events throughout most of the year.  It is worth the day trip to this park.

Glacier National Park

The FSSP Camera Club train travelers.

Well, we made it to Glacier National Park and we all lived to talk about it, even John Plut. There were three people not pictured because they chose to drive out, Christa Rittberg and Mary & Dan Dreher.  I think many of us were envying them by the time we arrived at East Glacier.  But there is the option of 21 hours of being on a train or 2-3 days of driving.

The train heads west from St. Paul at 10:20pm.  Even though we had been up all day most of us were unable to fall asleep except for Mary McKay.  I need to find out her secret.  The ride was usually smooth and I was surprised by how quiet our car was but, alas, little sleep for me.  When the sun finally came up we were in the North Dakota prairie.  I thought the prairie with the morning light quite beautiful.  Couldn't help but hum about the "amber waves of grain".
Amber waves of grain


By the time we arrived at East Glacier most of us were operating on 36 hours of very little sleep and were wishing we still had the energy of a 21 year old again.  As you can see some of us had a hard time keeping your heads up.

Charisse and Arthur trying to stay awake.


One good thing about the lack of sleep is that most of us got a excellent rest the first night we were there.  The next day some of us took the Red Bus tour while the others did a self-driving tour.


The first day most of the group were taking the Red Bus tour.  Ruth, Leon, Arthur, Mary, Doug and I were on bus 104.  I almost wasn't on it, so I have to give a big shout out and THANK YOU to Ruth Kosek.  I got in the bus and the seat are benches with doors on only on side of the bus. I immediately felt my chest tighten and started to push Ruth out because I couldn't stay in the confining area for another minute let alone an entire day.  Ruth went and asked the driver if I could have the empty seat in the front with the driver and he said yes. So, thank you again Ruth.  I would have missed one of my favorite days ever if you hadn't thought to ask. 

Ben - the driver of 104

I also want to thank Ben (if you liked the tour) /Jake (if you didn't like it).  I can only refer to him as Ben.  He's a brave man to drive The Road To The Sun everyday with a bus load of people. He told us that he very rarely encountered a bear on his ride but we would know when one was around.  BEAR JAM!
Bear Jam


So we got lucky.  We arrived towards the end of the sighting.  I couldn't believe how many people got out the their cars.  They must of all thought they could run faster than at least one other person. We could 'bearly' see it but we did so we could say we saw one.  All of a sudden people started running for their cars and no, the bear was not coming towards them, the ranger was.  When I saw the jam I thought we would be there for an hour but it cleared out very fast once they were told to leave.

Bovine - letting us now who is the boss on this road!

The park's eastern border is with the Blackfeet Nation reservation.  They have an open range policy so there are bovine wandering on the road.  They were more of a driving danger than bear, deer etc. This is an issue even among the members of the Blackfeet tribe.  Many feel they should not be allowed to traverse the roads.  


The next day Leon, Ruth, Doug and I rented a van.  When we went to pick it up they wanted to know if we wanted a $30,000 Caravan or $60,000 Ford Expedition.  We took the Expedition.  Very nice ride.  


We decided to go to another part of the park, Many Glacier.  

Many Glacier

When we stopped to take this photo Doug and I were the first out of the car.  I see something black down near the lake shore thinking it is a bovine. It wasn't. I quietly get Doug's attention as a bear starts to look at us.  Leon is getting out of the car, walks over see's the bear and shouts "BEAR!!!!"  It stands on his hind legs, checks us out and runs away from us!  No photos but we got to see one fairly close.  Needless to say we got back in the car rather quickly.

Our first two days were beautiful weather-wise, partly sunny and near 68 degrees.  Our last day had a high in the 40's and SNOW!  We had scheduled a ride with Sun Tours which is a tour with the Native American perspective.  

Canadian border - Welcome to Blackfeet Nation

Meri was our driver and guide for the day and since it was snowing and we had already been on The Road to the Sun she gave us a very special tour.  Browning is the largest city on the reservation and near where Meri grew up.  She showed us cliffs that were used for "buffalo jumps", the site of an old BIA school that her grandparents attended and told many tales and histories of the tribe.  I was surprised at how similar the traditions are to the Dakota/Ojibwa native traditions with sun dances and sweat lodges.  Another good tour and on more comfortable coaches.

This is a panorama - the lodge wasn't as big as this makes it look.


Every evening we met in the lobby of the lodge to compare sightings, stories and photos.  The entire trip was a fun and learning experience.

The ride home was much better since we started  9:30 in the morning and more people were able to sleep.  The party was over.  At one point when a number of people were in the lounge car playing cards I was sitting by myself reading Louise Erdrich's The Plague of Doves.  As I was sitting there enjoying being alone for a while, looking at the Montana prairie, I read this passage.  

To run is to revel in a pretend freedom.  I spring along slowly, matching my breathing to my stride, passing the usual fence lines, and thinking. Running is like riding on a train after a while, a motion that allows thoughts to drop down clear from a place in your mind that surprises you.
As many of you can guess, I do not run but it is true of a peaceful hypnotizing ride on a train.

July 2016 Meeting Notes

The July meeting was chaired by President Geri Fenton. 

Welcome to Patty who is just getting started in photography, Gary who enjoys wildlife photography, and Jim from Vancouver who likes to photograph the area around Lake Pepin.

Leon educated us on Motion in Photography – We can either freeze motion or embrace motion.  To freeze motion, use a fast shutter speed (1/500 or more).  Bright light and high ISO also helps get a faster shutter speed.  To embrace motion, use a slower shutter speed (generally 1/60 or slower).  Adding a ND (neutral density) filter or even a polarizing filter can help slow down the shutter speed.  Another way to embrace motion is to try panning, where you use a slow shutter speed and track a moving subject – the result being the moving subject that is in focus with a motion-blurred background.

MN State Parks license plate - The new license plate will be available from the DMV this fall as part of the ongoing celebration of the 125th anniversary of Minnesota state parks and trails. The cost will start at $60, plus tax. The total includes a one-time $10 fee for the plate itself and a minimum $50 contribution (renewable annually).  Proceeds from license plate sales will help fund the operations and maintenance of Minnesota state parks and trails.  The plate includes park admission. See more details here.

Show-n-Tell

Mary reported there are 10 fawns on Picnic Island, but they are hard to see because the grass is so tall (and there are lots of bugs).

Sher reported there is an elusive Green Heron that has been visiting Snelling Lake.

John C shared more photos of the LiIlydale eaglets and also photos from his nephew’s glider taken over snow-capped mountains.

Chris was published in the Owatonna town booklet!  Chris says to hashtag your images when posting online – it will help to be found in online searches.

Sher was our July presenter.  She enjoys many types of photography, and chose to share some of her favorite photos and stories of birds, barns, and bugs.  Sher shoots with a Canon SX50 that has an incredible 1200mm equivalent zoom! 

For birds, Sher shoots out her windows at home and also makes her way around the Twin Cities.  She showed lovely captures of Eastern Bluebird, Blue Jay, Indigo Bunting (from Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden), a Robin bird nest, Northern Flicker, Baltimore Oriole, Red-bellied and Pileated Woodpecker and more.  She always tries to incorporate an interesting background.  Her images from the Fergus Falls rookery were wonderful and a lot of the personality of the birds could be seen.  The Green Heron in all its comical poses was especially entertaining.  She had images of a Yellow- and Black-crowned night heron, and a particularly cool image of a Great Blue Heron after having caught a big northern!  My favorite was the lovely duckling on a lily pad leaf with a blooming white flower.  From Sherburne Wildlife Refuge, she captured a lovely silhouette of the eagle’s nest against a beautiful sunset.  And so many more…

Barns – Sher likes to capture barns in the winter and spends a lot of time working the scene, oftentimes going back at different times of the year or season.  She especially likes it when she can compose her images so there is some sort of shadow on one of the barn walls – like tree branches or a windmill.  She showed an amazing assortment of barns from right around the Twin Cities – off 55 near Rockford, Dearwood Apple Orchard, Rogers (round barn).  Sher invites anyone to just ask her for locations – she is happy to share.  Sher is also a watercolor artist and will sometimes paint her images to remove backgrounds and create even more works of art. So much talent!

You can tell Sher spends a lot of time with her photography because even her bug collection was full of great close-ups of bees, spiders, damselfly, dragonflies, turtles, moths – and an actual tagged monarch!

Many thanks to Sher for sharing her images!  She let us with some photo tips that we can all put into practice next time we are out shooting birds, barns, or bugs: 
  • Use spot metering when shooting white birds like great or snowy egrets
  • Work the image to find the darkest possible background, especially for flowers or bugs.  Can also use vignette and burning in Photoshop – if burning, do it in spots instead of all over so it will look more natural.  You can also use black velvet for a background, but only in shade or at an angle so as not to show the sheen.
  • You can put bugs in a jar in the refrigerator for 3 minutes to slow them down which makes them easier to work with – although be warned that this doesn’t work with frogs!


Challenge topic for July was “Flowers”.  Several people commented that we had an unusually high number of very fine images this time around.  (Our photography skills must be getting better!)

Please use our blog!  If you weren’t aware, FSSPCC has a blog – see it here and take a look at some of the recent posts.  You are invited to post photos or stories, especially flora or fauna from the park, park events, club events, travelogues, or just nature in general.  The blog is easy to use, you just need to be granted access by emailing the club (email address below).  You can set it so you automatically get notified whenever there is a new posting.  Meeting notes are posted on the blog, too.
