Once again this year we are planning our annual excursion to experience one of Ontario’s photographic gems. We are changing the timing of our visit this year to the weekday’s vs. an extended weekend. This is being done to avoid the increase in crowds that we’ve been experiencing.
We have planned our visit to Tobermory, ON for Monday June 5 through Friday June 9 inclusive, 2017. This trip will provide opportunities to expand your nature image portfolio. Some of the subject material that can be expected are sunrise/sunsets, grand scenic land/seascapes, wild flowers (several varieties of Orchids, Lakeside Daisies, Indian Paintbrush, Columbine, etc.), lighthouses and old stuff.
Among the usual techniques we will attempt timelapse sequences, landscape focus staking, panoramas, long exposures, and photographing the night sky. The moon phase will be moving from First Quarter (Jun. 1) through to Full (Jun. 9). Even with the influence of moonlight in the Night Sky, we will still have opportunity for some interesting nightscapes.
As in the past I’ll have a couple of Nikon IR-Converted bodies with me for loan if you want to try your hand at digital IR.
As always this will be an unguided tour however several of the participants have visited the area many times in previous years so there will be plenty of experience to draw upon to plan each day’s agenda.
If interested, please sign-up using the sign-up sheet or send me an email by April 26, 2017. I have blocked out 20 rooms at the Coach House Inn so that we can make your own arrangements. Ruth, the proprietor of the Coach House has again offered a rate of $55.00 per night single or double occupancy. We can also arrange carpooling to offset costs and consider conservation.
I will provide the usual sunrise/sunset data and weather forecast info as the date draws near.
