Photo Tours Unlimited is offering this special workshop to the Grand Canyon's North Rim in 2018:
"Autumn at the North Rim" October 1-5, 2018
Call or e-mail Photo Tours Unlimited for more details on this workshop
Over years of exploring and photographing the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park in all seasons, this has become Peter Ensenberger’s favorite spot in Arizona. The majestic landscape, clean air and deep blue skies create a setting that has no rival. And autumn is the season he loves most. All the superlatives you’ve heard about the North Rim are true. With overlooks reaching 9,000 feet in elevation, autumn arrives at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon long before it reaches other canyons of the Southwest. This is Arizona high country at its best. Cool nights and short daylight hours quickly turn quaking aspen and oak forests from summer green to autumn gold. Spectacular displays of fall color line the meadows and mingle with spruces, pines and firs.
Peter leads you to his favorite places, where the change of the seasons is displayed most dramatically. And he shows you techniques to capture the brilliant colors at their best. You’ll photograph breathtaking sunrises and sunsets from the rim of the grandest canyon of them all. We’ll visit all the North Rim viewpoints in prime light –- Point Imperial, Bright Angel Point, Angel’s Window and everybody’s favorite, Cape Royal –- and Peter will take you to a few of the hidden gems he’s discovered on his explorations. If we’re lucky, we’ll get close enough to photograph the bison herd that roams the park. Mule deer, Merriam’s turkeys and Kaibab squirrels inhabit the meadows and forests, and California condors ride the thermals overhead, often perching on rocky outcroppings within range of a 300mm lens.
The historic and comfortable Grand Canyon Lodge is our home for the duration of the workshop, with its soaring picture-window views of the Canyon and its popular sunset patio. We’ll hold midday critique sessions in the lodge’s lecture hall when the sun is too high for good photography, and venture out to another magnificent Grand Canyon view as sunset approaches. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from Arizona Highways magazine’s longtime Director of Photography in one of the premier national parks of the world.
