 Participant Pictures from my March 9-11, 2018 3-Day Point Reyes: Chimney Rock Headlands Photo Retreat workshop.

Earlier this month I had a chance to spend several days with a small group of wonderful folks as part of my recent Point Reyes: Chimney Rock Headlands Photo Retreat photo workshop. One of the things that makes this particular class so special is that it’s limited to a small number of participants. What follows is a collection of images as shot by the participants, and I hope you’ll take a moment to enjoy the work.

The weather on this weekend was forecasting rain, but quite unseasonably, we also found ourselves shrouded by a thick blanket of coastal fog. On the plus side, it meant we got to *potentially sleep in for an extra hour, but it also meant working a little bit harder at seeing, since many of the standard beautiful postcard-blue sky scenes were obscured. The one morning when we seemed to be in for a nice sunrise, the fog teased us by rising in tandem with the sun; the higher the sun rose, the thicker fog would get. (*The extra hour of would-be sleep was unfortunately negated by the start of Daylight Savings.)

I should also mention that I have a couple more workshops at Point Reyes coming up later this year. A sure way to find out whenever new classes, workshops, tours, or presentations are announced is to subscribe to either my newsletter or blog posts.

So now, without further delay, allow me to share these wonderful images:

If you’d like to leave a comment for any of the participants, I’m sure they would love to hear any feedback on their work that you’re willing to provide.

Thanks so much for taking the time to look.
