Hesper Park – Light Painting

Inspired by a spontaneous light painting during the remarkable eclipse ride (see cover photo by Tristan Schmurr, with Vincenzo Turi as a painter), we wish to invite you to a short light painting session in a pleasant green setting of Hesper Park. Light painting requires a slow shutter speed and a source of light (a simple flashlight will do). We will bring one set of equipment plus a spare tripod to share with you. Mind that we are no Picasso, but we will be delighted to create light paintings with you.

DEPARTURE: 7th August (Tuesday) at 21h00 from PIRATE SHIP in the city park, next to the intersection between Boulevard du Prince Henri and Avenue Monterey. Please be there on time.

We will cycle down to Petrusse Valley (steep downhill) to Grunt. Next, we’ll be heading towards Pulvermühle, on the asphalt (car-free) road along the Alzette River and continue till we reach Hesper Park where we will stop for a light painting session.
