Date: June 11,2023
Location: Shenandoah National Park, VA
Time: Sunrise - Sunset (Mid Day Classroom)
This one day workshop will cover a lot in a day! We will be meeting one hour before sunrise at the Skyland Lodge to head out to shoot a scenic overlook in beautiful morning light. We might even see fog in the valleys below at this time of the year. After our sunrise/morning light shoot along Skyline Drive, we will be hiking the Rose River to photograph one of the parks most spectacular waterfalls as well as the amazing scenery along the river itself. After hiking back out, we will have a lunch together at Big Meadows Lodge before heading back out after a short break to look for and photograph new born fawns and other wildlife in Big Meadows. after shooting for a couple hours, we will load up on some snack and head south to our trailhead for an easy 1 mile hike out to our sunset location.
The day will conclude after sunset. It is recommended to book lodging either in the park or a nearby town such as Luray, VA the night before the workshop. Locals can drive home after sunset, but if you're coming in from further away I would recommend setting up lodging for the night before and the night we finish.
This one day workshop is rated moderate depending on your level of fitness. Participants are required to hike 2-3 miles this day, at times on steep trails to the river and falls.
