Burrowing Owls and Lavender Fields

On Saturday, May 12, I plan to be around Salton Sea to photograph burrowing owls. It’s a bit late in the season but I’m hoping there will be some fledglings still hanging around. Burrowing owls are active all day long but the best light will be early morning or late afternoon. During the middle of the day, their beaks cast heavy shadows. You should have a minimum 300mm lens. With that, you can get fairly close with a bit of patience.

On Saturday, May 19, I plan to be at the Keys Creek Lavender Farm in Valley Center, CA. The first time, I was unwillingly dragged out there by my wife but found myself oddly attracted to the farm. It’s an interesting place and I’m sure there are many photo ops that I haven’t yet explored. The lavenders will be in full bloom in May and June so, if you miss the 19th, you have until the end of June for the 2012 bloom.

In case you missed it, join the San Diego Photography Collective (no, you won’t be assimilated by the borg) at Deer Park Winery on June 10 for the Gathering on the Green, a mini-Concours de Elegance. Cuties for a Cause will be there to raise money for ArtHatch, a local not-for-profit that sponsors and supports youth in art. Mea culpa: the original announcement said the fund raiser is for an animal welfare group but that was last year’s cause.

San Diego Fair Photography Workshops

The fair opens Friday, June 8 and runs through Wednesday, July 4. It’s too late to enter the Ehibition of Photography contest but there are tons of workshops and some 1-day shootouts on tap. Follow this link for the latest info.
