Late autumn season in the Adirondacks is a special time of year, just after most tourists have left the Adirondacks and gone home leaving the woods and waters quiet, and yet still there is an explosion of autumn color both on the trees and covering the forest floor. Around Columbus Day there is still excellent fall color especially in the lower altitude Schroon Lake and Lake George regions where it lingers for a couple weeks longer, when the oaks are the last of the trees to turn, from their hues of maroon to brown. This is also the best time of year for photographing panoramic vistas over Lake George in the southeastern Adirondacks, with crisp late autumn days with low humidity and long sight distances in the clear air. Numerous hike-up mountain summits encircling Lake George provide vistas overlooking the lake, fall foliage, and distant High Peaks. We'll also photograph around Schroon Lake, the location of many of our workshops over the years, as it provides some excellent nearby forests to photograph among. Photographic locations on this workshop will thus be around Lake George shorelines, Lake George mountain viewpoints, the Pharaoh Wilderness region, or more locations. For all vistas over Lake George, pre-dawn or post-sunset hiking is required of up to 2 miles each way. This 2.5 day Adirondack photo workshop will start at 3:00pm Friday October 14th and conclude by 11:00 am Sunday October 16th, 2022. Overnight base location will be Lake George, which is easily accessible, has tons of motels, and ideally located in the Southeastern Adirondacks. Please book your own motel wherever you like, around the Lake George region. Glens Falls/Queensbury is a bit far south and you'd be doing more early/late driving. Alternatively contact the trip leader to enquire about possible room- mate matching service before booking a solo room.
