UPPER PENINSULA/LAKE SUPERIOR PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS

_______________



2020 Isle Royale National Park Night Sky Photography Workshop - September 8-12, 2020 - Just announced (CANCELED DUE TO COVID19)

We are back for our 4th year embarking on the 6 hour voyage to Isle Royale National Park to photograph some of the darkest night skies in the midwest. No cars. Dark skies. Moose. Just maybe, the aurora borealis. The solitude of a true wilderness experience abounds. Join us for a trip of a lifetime with five days, four nights photographing the starry skies and beautiful rugged landscape on one of the least visited national parks in the USA - the island of Isle Royale. We may even get treated to the northern lights during one of the most active months for aurora activity (September). Informational pdf is here:

<div><span style="color: #c0c0c0; font-size: medium;">&nbsp;</span></div>

<div><span style="color: #c0c0c0; font-size: medium;">As you may already know, the refuge is normally closed at night to the public, so this is a very special opportunity. I scouted the park last week and let me tell you, it is a very dark sky in all directions. <br /></span></div>

<div><span style="color: #c0c0c0; font-size: medium;">&nbsp;</span></div>

<div><span style="color: #c0c0c0; font-size: medium;">In my opinion, this is a world class night sky photography opportunity, with very dark skies, wide open horizons, and the potential for reflective compositions in the many pools throughout the park. It's getting harder and harder to find truly dark night skies.&nbsp; We will be in a location of the park that has access to the pools in all directions. Also very special is that we will have no distractions from other people, cars, etc.&nbsp; as we will be the only ones in the park during the night sky sessions. <br /></span></div>

<div><span style="color: #c0c0c0; font-size: medium;">&nbsp;</span></div>

<div><span style="color: #c0c0c0; font-size: medium;">The cost is $845 per person which includes 3 nights lodging, breakfasts and dinners at Chamberlin's Ole Forest Inn which is about 20 minutes away from the refuge on Big Manistique Lake.&nbsp;&nbsp; We will also have daytime opportunities of the sights in the area, but the focus is definitely on the dark sky opportunity presented here.&nbsp; <br /></span></div>

<div><span style="color: #c0c0c0; font-size: medium;">&nbsp;</span></div>

<span style="color: #c0c0c0;"><span style="color: #c0c0c0;"><span style="color: #c0c0c0;"><span style="font-size: medium;"><span style="color: #ccffff;"><span style="color: #c0c0c0;">I have waited until now to announce this workshop due to the covid19 situation, and of course if something happens where we cannot proceed due to covid19, all registration fees paid will be refunded.&nbsp;&nbsp; Otherwise, the deadline for cancellation for refund is August 20.
