Fall 2011 Photo Tour Results — Fall Dawn Go Boom
I’m getting packed up to head out tomorrow. I’m going up to Aurum Lodge to co-lead a workshop, Light Matters Masterclass: Creative Expression, with photo phenoms Samantha Chrysanthou and Darwin Wiggett. A small group of photographers looking to improve in creative, expressive photography are joining us for what should be a learning- and experience-packed event. I’m pumped up to be involved in this and have already been through some interesting thinking and personal learning as I’ve prepped my materials for the event. I’ll have more to say and show afterwards, I have no doubt.
Meanwhile, I’ll show another image from a killer sunrise shoot with our Fall 2011 Photo Tour group just a few weeks ago, also based at Aurum Lodge. Getting up early on a photo trip, one of the first things I do is have a look at the sky and check the weather satellite imagery for the surrounding region, if I can. Spotting some great lenticular clouds up top during the pre-dawn check, and seeing on the satellite that the prairies to the east were largely clear of cloud cover, I knew sunrise was almost sure to be fantastic. Nor were we disappointed! Getting to a favorite location looking over Mt. Michener and Abraham Lake, our small group was treated to an amazing explosion of dawn color that went on and on. It definitely got us charged up!
(Sorry for the corny title to the photo, I just couldn’t help myself!)
