Last week I was at the Rocky Gap Lodge and Golf Resort at Rocky Gap State Park on a family vacation. On Thursday 8th July 2010 walked with my dad and my son to Canyon Overlook Trail at the Rocky Gap State Park.
As we reached the overlook we found a group of very friendly professional photographers from the Western Maryland Photographers Association (WMPA) who were having a meet-up at this beautiful spot. They are all experts and share the passion for photography. They are on FaceBook and this was part of a regular Thursday meet-up. I was so thrilled to meet this group and “liked” their page. No the group is not on Twitter. The Facebook page is a great example of a local niche community.
Some great pictures from the members
