Adirondack Mountains offer some of the best foliage viewing anywhere in America especially for the vibrant red colors of the sugar maples. From lower mountain top peaks we can overlook red-filled valleys nestled below the High Peaks, and down below the forests are filled with bright yellow and reds which make for amazing forest compositions. Lakeshores offer reflections of color on calm mornings, with abstract patterns of white birch trunks and red maple trees offering telephoto and panoramic options. Autumn season in the Adirondacks is truly 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. This is also the best time of year for photographing panoramic vistas with crisp late autumn days with low humidity and long sight distances in the clear air. Blue Mountain Lake, a central location, provides some excellent nearby ponds and wetlands to photograph along. Photographic locations on this workshop will be between Blue Mountain Lake, Raquette Lake, Indian Lake, Lake Abanakee, Raquette River, and/or other locations. We will do at least one indoor intensive photography editing and critiquing session.

This 3.5 day Adirondack photo workshop will be based out of a private Bed and Breakfast in Blue Mountain Lake that we've rented out. Trip price includes accommodation, but please note that rooms are limited and some share a bathroom with other rooms. Please contact me to discuss your room assignment. The trip starts at 2pm on September 27th, and concludes around 11am on September 30th, 2024.
