I had my fingers crossed that when I came to Queenstown to do an “autumnal Colours” workshop that the trees would be turning but yesterday I was blown away.
The trip to Skippers Canyon just outside Queenstown was a blaze of colour in a landscape carved by water in to deep ravines and spectacular escarpments.Mike and Jackie who are the teaching gurus this photographic journey are patient and visionary. I had expected to learn a few new tricks but their technique is like nothing I have used before and the results are simply awesome.
It is reasons like this that I so enjoy incorporating a photographic workshop into a holiday. Skippers Canyon is not accessible in a hire car (stated as a journey with no insurance) so traveling on my own I would miss places like this. And having tutors along to guide me in better using my camera as a tool to create my own vision is so much fun.
My batteries are all recharged and I am ready to learn afresh. Looking forward to another great day!
