The Great Pittsburgh Nature Photography Adventure

Join Pittsburgh photographer Don Orkoskey of WDO Photography on his free monthly nature photo adventure through the incredible Frick Park Join the great Pittsburgh nature photography adventure Sept. 24th at 9:30 am in Frick Park. Experience the magic and wonders of nature that abound right here in our own city. September is a wonderful time for nature photography in Pittsburgh. There are still some late blooming flowers but many have gone to seed bringing both insects and birds to the meadows. Deer and other mammals are readying themselves for winter and the sun’s lower angle in the sky means we’ll have wonderful light to photograph in (rain or shine). Everyone is welcome to join to the great Pittsburgh nature photography adventure. This is an all ages, all skill levels walk around Frick Park lasting approx. two hours. Participants are welcome to leave at any time or stay later and continue to photograph long after 11:30. The pace and terrain will be set by both those who attend (and their level of ability) and by the subjects we find to photograph. Some walks don’t leave the meadow area, some venture far and wide.
