Yosemite Weekend Workshop June 12 – 13.
Had a great workshop with 3 participants all from the Seattle area.
Thom and Steve Collins, father and son, from Seattle, and Mike Alberts also from the Seattle area for their first-ever visit to Yosemite! What a blast! Did night shooting, hiked to Vernal Fall, went up to the high country, Tioga Pass and over to Mono Lake.
