Winter’s chill may have set in, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t opportunities to get out there and take some great photographs of Brooklyn’s scenery.
New York City Wild! is hosting a walking photography tour to capture Coney Island’s best wintertime scenes. The day will focus on “urban wilderness,” and will cover the backwaters of Coney Island Creek and the Coney Island oceanfront for photo opportunities.
The timing of the tour will allow for photographers to capture some wildlife native to the area in the winter, including ducks, loons, gulls and even seals.
The tour involves a good amount of walking, so photographers should bring warm clothing and shoes suitable for traversing sand and snow.
The tour will convene at the West 4th Street Downtown D Train station in Manhattan at 11 a.m. on Saturday, January 14. Once the group assembles, the tour will head to Brighton Beach for a meal.
