TCCC Wildflower Fieldtrip Guide


TCCC Member Don VanderMolen has provided an identification guide for the wildflowers that were found during the Northern Michigan TCCC Wildflower Fieldtrip in May.   Now the members that made the trip will be able to properly identify the wildflowers for competition and for those of us that were unable to go, we get to see what we missed.   We'll also know what to expect in future competitions.  Many thanks go to Don VanderMolen for all of his help in making the fieldtrip such a success and once again, thanks for the quick lesson on composition, lighting, etc. in the wonderful wildflower examples used in the guide.

The following is a short report from Don VanderMolen...

Eleven intrepid explorers convened in Mackinaw City to explore the scenic wonders of Northern Michigan. On Friday, several of us headed for the Wilderness State Park area to photograph wild flowers. Due to the warmth of early spring, many of the favorites had completed their bloom but we found many new species we had not seen on previous visits.
On Saturday, we headed for Tahquamenon Falls and photographed this wonderful spectacle. We lunched at the Pub at the State Park and then searched out Lake Superior Lighthouses including Crisp Point, Whitefish Point, Point Iroquois Light and even McGulpin Light in Mackinaw City. A photo sheet is on the website. Thanks to Ron Bonczkowki for sharing some of his pics.

I certainly enjoyed the outing with the gang and look forward to another adventure next year. Don VanderMolen
