Date: March 16th
Time: 7:00pm (Central Time)
Speaker: Robert Charity
Topic: Exploring Ozark Streams and Springs
Note: All meetings will be conducted via the Zoom meeting tool until further notice.
MONEP member, Bob Charity, will present a Zoom program on his exploration of Ozark streams by kayak and foot. Many of these streams are spring fed with crystal-clear water and meander past tall bluffs, which provide lots of possibilities for landscape photography. The program will include many drone and panorama images of his favorite out-of-the-way spots. His particular love is capturing these river views early in the morning when the overnight mist is lifting. Bob will discuss his planning for these shots. The program will also show some underwater images of the colorful fish and animals that inhabit these rivers.
Bob is an enthusiastic hiker, kayaker, nature lover, and photographer and has been a member of MONEP for six years. He bought his first SLR camera 37 years ago and has been taking photographs of his adventures ever since. He is trained as a physicist, and his professional career has taken him from Australia to California, Germany, and eventually to Missouri allowing lots of opportunities for photography. His images have been published in Digital Photo, Backpacker, and Modern Times magazines and appear on the Franklin County website.
