Photography Field Trips
The Gaithersburg Camera Club has launched a series of single day photography field trips that are within an easy drive from our hometown. Members with any level of experience are free to join us at a variety of locations.

St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral in DC - 2/9/2019 at 10am
St. Sophia Cathedral in DC is modeled on a cathedral of the same name in Istanbul. The architectural style is Byzantine with a central dome approximately 80 feet high.  The cathedral was consecrated on February 18, 1955.  It contains more than 90 mosaic and acrylic icons whose scheme was adapted from churches that existed in Constantinople.
The meetup will be at 10:00 AM, which is when the cathedral is open to the public. 
We will meet at the usual location for carpooling, Gaithersburg Park-N-Ride Lot (I-270 and Quince-Orchard Road) at 8:45 AM.  Click on details for more details and directions to the church. Click St Sophia Greek Cathedral to sign up for this trip.
