Tin City tour – expression of interest

HI All

A bit over a year ago on the Canon Collective in Port Stephens I went on a tour of Tin City which went for 2 hours. This was a good length of time as it enable me to get right up into the sand dunes which is where I got some of my winning shots from. I have spoken to the people who run these tours to see what it would cost to put on one for us. They can do that with a minimum number of 4 but would be able to hold about 20 in the bus. The cost would be no more than $60 and you would need to bring your own lunch. we need to tie in with tides but winter is the best time for shooting during the day as the sun is low. The trip would be during the week and at this stage I am seeing if there is enough people interested to put it on, so if you would like us to put this trip on send me an email
