Thanks to the Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY, for sponsoring two photography hikes on May 21 and 26, 2022 and having me as their photography instructor. We enjoyed a 2.7 mile trek through Terrell River County Park, Center Moriches directed by Amber Gagliardi through a lush deciduous forest to see deer, a turkey and her chicks, a box turtle, swans, ducks, the river, the bay beach, a majestic maple and a collage of vines. Fragrant wisteria bloomed at the trailhead.
I asked the smartphone and camera-toting patrons, “What interested you to sign up? The photography part or the hike part?” Almost in unison, the group said, “Both!”
Thank you for imparting your knowledge of nature photography to the MCPL participants. This was a very pleasurable hike & photo shoot for me. I look forward to future programs which you will lead for our library patrons!
