The Gales of November - Peter Wong Photo Safari Workshop: Dec 7-9, 2012


My next Photo Safari Workshop will be from December 7th to the 9th, (Gales of December does not sound as good). My hope is to be at the Lake when a storm approaches. Carefully we will position ourselves at spots to capture the fury and power of the lake, with 20 to 30 foot waves crashing onto the cliffs and rocky shores. It sounds dangerous and exciting at the same time. If that happens, we photographers will be in a state of euphoria. Unfortunately I cannot guarantee that a storm will happen while we are there, but Lake Superior has lots to offer and we will have many other wonderful images that we can capture. – Peter Wong [...]
