Spring Week Long; May 16 – 20, 2011
What can you say about 13 excellent students, prodigies really, and a variety of weather we could not have ordered out of a Sears catalog! And for the second year in a row, the May workshop was greeted by wintery weather, rain, clouds, cold and yes, snow!! All perfect for shooting and learning new techniques.
The "Partial" group shot; some students opted not to do this hike, and Kevin, the ex-marine went all the way to the top with only a knife clenched in his teeth... (not really, but almost)
Dick composes his image.

Interesting post procedures on this unique shot of grass in the Merced River by workshop student Steve Bonswor. Excellent example of when it's right to break all the rules.
Kevin Black shot this tremendous image of a Yosemite Black Bear. This is a rare untagged bear in Yosemite Valley in the vicinity of Bridalveil Fall.
Several students stayed after the workshop to shoot the "moonbow" at Yosemite Falls. They stayed until 2am! Steve Bonswor got this great one!
Workshop student Kevin Black got this neat shot from Tunnel View. Great black and white conversion!
Nice shot of Yosemite Creek below Lower Yosemite Fall by workshop student Shirley.
