Photo Outings

Each month MAPS selects a location around the Chicagoland area to go for a Photo Outing. The major theme for these outings is nature. We select one outing per month, and you can see when and where we go below.

Please note that you can sign up for each event listed below by following the specified link. Also note that by signing up for each event you are agreeing to the MAPS Photo Outing Waiver of Liability.

After the photo outing, you can share a few of your images with the others. You know the routine: 1000 pixels on the long side, saved as JPG with a sRGB color space, then you can drag and drop them to Google Photo using the link below.

If you are not sure how to prepare or upload your images, please follow the detailed instructions in these documents:

Recent Outings:

  • Lake Marmo and Sterling Pond – Saturday November 2, 2019
    Eight members signed up for this outing to meet the morning sun. Well, a bit on the chilly side with the sun hiding behind the clouds members took advantage of the situation as long as they were there! The Fall color was great and the sun did pop up now and then for some wonderful chances. Some members also saw deer and Blue Herons!

    Because sun stars were not possible Saturday morning, we are going to do something different:
    Virtual Outing from now till the end of November!
    Make images of sunrise or sunsets at your own speed. Try to get those rays shooting out of our closest star! Images don’t have to be taken at the Morton Arboretum.

    Images can be posted and viewed here!
