Baker Creek Chalets – SNAP! Photo Seminars – Part II
Today it was up at 5:30 am, breakfast at 6:00 and then off to photography at 7:30 am. Today my group headed off to Herbert Lake. We shot sunrise there and then went to a small waterfall between Herbert Lake and Mosquito Creek. Once we finished at those locations we were off to Emerald Lake in Yoho National Park in British Columbia. However, we seemed to get a little distracted. We came upon some Elk near the highway and spent a little more time photographing them then we sent think about to fact that we were suppose to meet the other group at Emerald. We finally moved on only to see another herd of Elk and once again we stopped. We moved on again, this time making it to The Natural Bridge (just before Emerald Lake). The other group had now been there about thirty minutes and wanted to move on. My group, of course, had just arrived and wanted to shoot at that location. So, we watched as the other half of the workshop attendees drove off the Emerald. We never did get there. Running low on time, we headed back to Baker Creek for another classroom session. We had our class, which was fantastic, and then did a quick critique of pictures brought by the group. Once, complete we packed up our camera gear and went to Johnson Canyon to hike and photograph there. Then, back to the Chalets for Dinner and some friendly chat. So, it was another great day (beside the fact that I lost a three stop soft ND Grad filter in the Kicking Horse River, broke the windshield in the rental car and my back-up system stopped working but, that is a story for a different day). Tomorrow it is off the shoot at Lake Louise before packing up and heading for home. Here are another four images from this weekend, enjoy. Thanks again for visiting and as always Happy Shooting.
