    Talking [NIGHT MACRO - Exploration] McRitchie Reservoir

    Dear all,

    Following would be an explorotary night macro trip. The purpose of this trip would be to scout for location for future night macro trip and also to ascertain the geographical paths of the park at night.

    Of course we would be doing a lot of macro shooting as well. Next week's Friday (The Stevewhy's Friday Night Special :P) night macro may be heading to McRitchie Reservoir if our exploratory outing proved successful.

    Limited to 10Pax for crowd control and easy tracking

    Location : McRitchie Reservoir
    Meeting location : McRitchie Reservoir Car Park
    TIme : 7:30 PM
    Date : May 01, 2009 (Friday Night)
    Duration : 7:30 PM till 12 AM

    Please bring water, especially after heavy rain in the afternoon (most ideal condition for night macro) the humidity is so high, you can't imagine how much sweat you loose in a short while.

    Please bring a bright torch light - Its never too bright - Flooders are encouraged, throwers are welcomed too (Will elaborate further this Friday)

    If it rains - Please contact me, we will see and evaluate, its afterall exploratory.

    Hi all, just to highlight to first time night macro-ers, you'll need to bring along a really STRONG torch, those with at least 3 white-light LED or brighter. You'll need it to focus. I made that mistake on my first night trip.

    Look forward to meeting up with all tmr night.
