Workshop concludes after morning field session.
We will meet in the vibrant college town of Marquette located on the shores of mighty Lake Superior for some of the best fall color anywhere in the country. The countryside surrounding town is full of charming country roads that lead to scenic lakes and streams. We will also make a side trip to the scenic Bond Falls, always a workshop favorite.
Then we will spend three days exploring around Pictured Rock National Lakeshore with its dramatic cliffs, sand dunes, beaches, waterfalls and lake reflections. We will be reserved for sunset cruise out on the lake (weather permitting) to get a unique perspective of the fascinating shoreline. The UP autumn colors are not only the best in the Midwest, but rival any location in the country in my opinion.
EQUIPMENT SUGGESTIONS: A sturdy tripod is a necessity for good landscapes. Participants should have a working knowledge of their equipment (know which button does what!) before the workshop. I suggest a SLR camera with a wide-angle lens (17-35mm range), and a zoom or fixed lens, like a 70-200 or 300mm. We have also had some point and shoot shooters attend so don’t feel you have buy that latest and greatest. There’s a lot to learn just by seeing.
