Hobbs State Park Partners with the Photographic Society of Northwest Arkansas on a Free, Public, Fall Color Photo Walk

16 Oct 2016 1:01 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)
In a new partnership between Hobbs State Park and the Photographic Society of Northwest Arkansas, a Fall Photography “Photo Walk” will be led by Cleeo Wright and other members of PSNWA on Saturday, October 29th beginning at 7:00am.  The theme of this event is “Fall Colors”, focusing on changing colors of the foliage at Hobbs State Park.


Bring whatever camera gear you are comfortable with, be it a full-frame DSLR, or a smartphone.  If you are familiar with the manual settings of your camera and like fall color/nature photography – this photo walk is for you.


All participants will meet at the parking lot of the Historic Van Winkle and Sinking Stream Trailheads, and begin the photo walk promptly at 7:00am, concluding as the morning light begins to shift.  The photo walk will take place rain or shine.  Believe it or not, overcast and wet mornings create some of the best photographic Fall Color opportunities.


The trails are described as “easy” in difficulty, yet it is suggested to bring sturdy shoes suitable for hiking.  Sinking Stream Trail has one small elevation increase.  The Historic Van Winkle Trail is wheelchair accessible.  Each trail is 0.5 miles in length.


Travelling east out of Rogers on Hwy 12, about 10 miles from downtown, is a paved parking lot on your right with restrooms.  This is the site of the Historic Van Winkle and Sinking Stream trailheads.


If you are a seasoned photographer, or just beginning, you will not want to miss the chance to attend this photo walk on Fall Color Photography.
