Our Marietta, Oklahoma photo and travel club are looking for iris farms or private gardens to view and photo this coming April. I am aware of Argyle in Texas and Stout in OK City, both of which we have toured in the past. Do any of my Dave's friends know of other areas within a hundred miles of here that we can see this spring?
Also... what opinions do ya"ll have on the new Kodak easyshare Z981 26X for amatuer photography? I am really wanting an upgrade from my easyshare 10x as I mostly photo close ups of plants and wildlife...just hesitating to spend the bucks
I visited a fabulous wildlife park in Glen Rose, Texas called Fossil Rim and had an amazing photo experience http://www.fossilrim.org/tours.php You can do a guided photo tour with as many people as you want and spend an entire day shooting the amazing wildflowers and animal collection at the park in a private jeep ride. I did the private tour, just myself and one other person and a guide in a regular open jeep driving all over the park spending as much time as we wanted everywhere, going off the roads, seeing a lot of stuff that isn't on the regular tours. It was a once in a lifetime experience. I have a couple of my photos on the internet http://www.finnskeeper.net/Fun.html (everything on that page but the orangs and the lion were taken at fossil rim) Sorry I don't have the wildflower pics up but the wildflowers are really beyond amazing there of the animals and plants. Its a cageless facility so the animals are in semi-natural conditions. Really an amazing experience. It shouldn't be that far from you.
Jackie have y'all been to the Azailia festival in Muscogie Ok should be just about primr now and even if you have been the whole eastern part of Oklahoma is just striking this time of year..Man I should be on the COC payroll don't ya think
