Field Trip Images
Rockland Photography Club members enjoy participating in various field trips throughout the year. They can pick and choose to attend based on their interest in the selected location and their availability. It’s a great way to practice our skills and get to know each other better. Unfortunately, due to Covid 19 restrictions, the number of field trips are limited. Below are some images from past trips.
Ringwood Manor, NJ
Ringwood Manor is a National Historic Landmark District, having historical importance spanning from Native American occupation through the early 20th century. The surrounding Ramapo Mountains’ rich magnetite iron deposits made the area a major iron supplier and became the home to a succession of ironmasters for over two hundred years.
NJ Lottery Festival of Ballooning, NJ
The NJ Lottery Festival of Ballooning is the largest summertime hot air balloon festival in North America. We had permission to be on the field with local media as the pilots are preparing their balloons for launch. It was a lot of fun and afterwards we enjoyed breakfast together.
Members of RPC had an opportunity to tour various sites in Nyack, NY. We were fortunate to have one of our members, Lee Hoffman, be our tour guide as he has been part of Nyack’s Historical Society for many years. We covered the village’s historic architecture, retail stores that offer unique gifts, a vibrant street and river vista venue, and many other opportunities for interesting details of all kinds.
Red Mill Museum
In early December, 2020, the club offered a field trip to the Red Mill Museum located in Clinton, NJ. The site has over 200 years of history. It includes a 4-story grist mill and several other buildings which showcase approx. 40,000 objects that reflect its time as an industrial mill, wool processing plant, and peach basket factory.
