Join Hunt’s Photo for an afternoon/sunset photo walk at Gilsland Farm Audubon Center. Situated along the Presumpscot River estuary just five minutes from Portland, Maine Audubon’s headquarters features a modern environmental education center and a 65-acre sanctuary with more than two miles of trails winding along a pond and through forest, meadow, orchard, and salt marsh. Gilsland Farm features 2.5 miles of trails, winding through meadows, in and out of woods, and along the shore of the Presumpscot River estuary. Abundant woodland and shrubs attract migrating warblers, thrushes, and finches, while the adjacent tidal flats support large flocks of feeding shorebirds. Mammals include weasels, Red Fox, deer, and a variety of rodents, as well as the farm’s unique population of Black Woodchucks. A small pond is home to frogs and muskrat, and the sanctuary’s gardens and plantings attract scores of butterflies and dragonflies.
The walk will begin at 4pm and end at 8pm. We will discuss exposure, subject development, image composition, and more throughout the walk. Photographers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend.
If you are attending this walk, we will send out more specific instructions to you a few days prior to the walk. However, be advised we will be meeting at Gilsland Farm at the time listed. Please note: Some slight details above can be subject to change. This email will detail any of those minor changes.
