Each month the Brentwood Photography Group hosts a themed outing for members to join and take some great shots of places you might not ordinarily get to see. Past outings have taken us to old churches, abandoned factories, car shows, and small towns around Tennessee and surrounding states.
Following the Outing, you can send one image to the event organizer and this will be added to our Outings Gallery page. Your image should be a .jpg sized to 2000 pixels along the longest edge.
Hold Harmless Agreement
Our next outing will be at Fort Donelson National Battlefield.
When: Saturday May 18 at 9:30 AM.
Where: Stewart County visitor center. 117 Visitor Center Lane, Dover , TN 37058.
Who: any current member of the Brentwood Photography Group.
Lunch: Mama Mia’s, located next to the visitor center.
Cost: there is no admission fee to the battlefield.
Drive Time: about 90 minutes, check you navigation aid.
Other than the significant historical aspects such as the battery and cemetery, the battlefield is home to an eagle’s nest with a 7 week old juvenile. The area is cordoned off, but should provide a good telephoto opportunity, don’t forget your tripod! There are self guided tour maps, although the visitor center recommends tick repellent should you wish to use the trails. You can also access a virtual tour on the web site.
Other items you may find interesting are the Dover Hotel (aka Surrender House) located outside the battlefield, as well as the Eagle Fest, a local celebration held south of the city. I understand that an osprey nest is near the park on a river buoy.
RSVP to outings. Include your lunch intentions. Please download and sign a hold harmless agreement and bring it with you, I will be collecting them at our meeting location.
