My workshop in Bandon is over and I am already in full swing with my Swan Island Dahlia workshop. Many of my clients that participated in the Bandon workshop have continued on here in Canby for some amazing dahlia photography. It was hard to say goodbye to the sea stacks and the folks we left behind. Susan Dimock who was my assistant and local guide for this workshop was great. Her kind mannerisms made everyone feel welcome. See you next year Susan for our Bandon 4 day workshop!! I can’t wait, details soon to follow.
For most of our time we had overcast skies with heavy haze and/or fog. I loved it… but I would have also loved some more colorful sunsets but with the wildfires here on the west coast that was not to be. Still the fog that we had was great for pictures, it creates a mood that just can’t be replicated.
During our workshop we got to see and photograph the “Circle in the Sand” beach labyrinth art that has grown so popular. Next year I can’t wait to see what the group of artists create on the beach!
On one of our horse shoots we had a young colt named Reno come with his mom. The colt was still trying to nurse and he was absolutely adorable! I have so many images to go through but I wanted to share a few of my first pics here. After I processed this one I found a better one-I’ll try to share more images later. I am just getting really behind, I need to concentrate on my taxes when I get home so I may need to take a break 🙂 .
