Fun And Free Pittsburgh Photography Walk In Frick

greatest nature photography walk in Pittsburgh

Join me, Pittsburgh photographer Don Orkoskey for my monthly fun and free Pittsburgh photography walk in Frick Park. Our adventure starts at 9:30 am Oct. 23rd near the Frick Environmental Center. Look for me and other photographers gathering around the fountain at the end of the promenade near the Clayton Trailhead.

October is the perfect time for nature photography in Frick. Many flowers have gone to seed attracting a variety of song birds. The leaves have changed colors providing a vivid backdrop or a subject all their own. The air should be crisp and cool, and perfect for fall photography.

Come explore the abundant local nature with your camera! Join me on this fun and free Pittsburgh photography walk, and we'll have a grand adventure!

All photographers are welcome regardless of skill level, ability, age, or any other factors. If you are interested then please come out. I promise that you are welcome!
