Solitude Springs is a great place to shoot anything from macro to landscapes. There is also a place set up to shoot humming birds at a butterfly bush. All four seasons can be shot here creating a variety of images depending on what flowers are in bloom. It is also a good place for fall foliage with the trees around the pond making nice reflections. Snowscapes could be done here, but take your 4 wheel drive. The driveway into the springs is long and gravel. Each season here would be a different experience.
At the meet-up on 13 September, eight members spent about two hours shooting the different attractions including the horses and the frogs and oh yes more humming birds.
