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

Lake Superior or Gichigami as the Ojibwe Indians called her, can manifest her moods in many ways. She can be calm and pleasant or turbulent and stormy. No matter what her mood is, the water is always cold and a constant 39 degrees F at 660 feet below the surface. Twice per year the water reaches a uniform temperature of 39 degrees from top to bottom. Therefore she must be given the respect she deserves.

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.

This Photo Safari will be totally geared to photography. All of the participants will be staying together in a rented home, most probably right on the lake shore. Ladies and couples (non photographer spouses will only pay for lodging) will have the choice of having bedrooms (there may be some sharing/bunk beds) and men will be using their own sleeping bags on couches and floor space. You will not have to be bothered with cooking the meals or waiting for a large table at a restaurant. There will be 2 dinners, 2 breakfasts and a bag lunch for the day on Saturday provided. Of course I will need to know if you have any food allergies or just dislike certain types of food.

Please contact me to get more details, and if you are definitely going, I will need a monetary deposit by November 16th, 2012. I can provide the names and contact information of the photographers for you to ask their experiences at my Photo Safaris.

I will email a list of gear that you need for this weekend 10 days to 2 weeks before departure.
