Registrations are now being accepted for the Night Photography course, taught
by Tim at the College of Marin, Kentfield campus, starting April 1, 2011.
This is a seven-week course, and a perfect followup for those Nocturnists
who have taken one or more workshops with The Nocturnes, in which one
can 'stretch' out a bit - it's also good as an introduction to the topic of
Night Photography (NPy). All the details are here.
April 1 is also the deadline for early registration for our trek down to Joshua
Tree in May, for a three- night Full Moon Night Photography Workshop taught
by Tim Baskerville and Lance Keimig (of The
Night Skye). Details can be found here,

the Lee Shore" is now posted on the Web site. The title, of course comes
from the song, "Lee Shore" written by David Crosby, It's a beautiful,

- and for us, here at The Nocturnes, continues our study of music as muse.
Also, we are looking for a non-virtual (i.e."bricks 'n' mortar")
venue to exhibit the work in 2011 - part of the TheNocturnes@20.-
any suggestions? Check out the prospectus
for this, our 24th online show.
Finally, some 'teasers" for you to ponder: What location will the Mare
Island Nocturnes be showing nightwork at, this August? Also in August
- what iconic Bay area landmark will witness an invasion of Nocturnes for
a late-night amphibious rendezvous?
