What an exciting 2019 is in store for us. We'll begin in the Spring with a high desert adventure in Joshua Tree National Monument. With a little luck, we'll be there for the wildflowers as well. Then, in July, we head west for the Sonoma Coast workshop where we'll explore long water exposures and interesting locations such as where Hitchcock filmed "The Birds." And finally, in September, we head north for the majestic Humboldt Redwoods and the picturesque Eel River. Each event a unique and satisfying photographic adventure.
