Featuring a chance to photograph the wildlife and the winter landscape at the Mystic Lakes

We also recommend having some of the knowledge from our Beginner Photography class
All Skill Levels Welcome
Instructor: Don Toothaker
Class Size: Maximum 8 attendees
Join Hunt’s Photo Education as we photograph at the Mystic Lakes in Medford. On this walk, we will have numerous shooting opportunities, particularly a chance to photograph the wildlife–birds, ducks, eagles, and more– and the winter landscape . Photographers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend!
The Mystic Lakes, like Horn Pond, are fed by the Aberjona River, and in turn empty into the Mystic River and then Boston Harbor. It is home to the Medford and Winchester Boat Clubs, running paths, beaches, and parkland. The two lakes–upper and lower–are separated by a dam, which will act as our meeting location.
This walk will be an excellent chance to try out your long telephoto lenses. We will also be joined on this walk by our Tamron rep, Andrew, who will have with him a few Tamron 150-600mm and 100-400mm lenses (Nikon and Canon only). Join us for a fun walk!
Please note: There will be a good amount of walking on this Photo Walk. Nothing too treacherous, but make sure to wear comfortable shoes!
