May 2011 Newsletter - ColdSnap Photography

May 2011 Newsletter

This last weekend I was in Des Moines Iowa for a two day workshop. We had wonderful light for our sunrise although admittedly it was a tad on the brisk side-at least cold enough to make your hands stiff after a few minutes in the wind, but our group hung tough and made some great photographs.

Tomorrow I head out for a four day Spring Ephemeral photo shoot in Southern Minnesota and Wisconsin. In Wisconsin I have the good fortune to have an excellent guide, John Zoerb a wonderful photographer and native plant expert. I will let you know what he shares and what I discover.

The Split Rock Arts Summer Solstice workshop is getting close to full, if you are planning to sign up you had better contact them. Last I heard there were 4 spots left.

The Wildflowers and Waterfalls workshop has 6 openings left. This workshop offers the best of the North Shore in Spring-ok early summer-either way it will be a blast.

People and Place-dance to the wonderful sounds of the Two Harbors Ukulele Group (THUG)-or photograph others dancing. One of the locations and events we will be visiting is the informal country hoe-down at the Silver Creek Town hall held the last Friday of every month. While we never know who will show up to play or dance one thing is for sure there will be lots to photograph….

In this newsletter I have given some tips in how to prepare for a wildflower trip just like the one I am going on. I have also included some of my favorite places to go.

Stop by the gallery on your next trip up north.
