Additional November Fire and Ice Tour added

Posted in Workshops and Seminars with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 13, 2011 by Darwin

The November 10 – 13 Fire and Ice event is sold out but we have just added a second 2011 tour in mid November this year.  The Fire and Ice Tour is one of my favorites because of the short days with great light and the intersection of new ice with the fiery skies of late fall.

The second tour starts Wed. Nov. 16th 5pm to Sunday Nov. 20th 1:30 pm (four nights at Aurum Lodge!), with the option to join a day later (Nov. 17th) for those who cannot make the four nights, but wish to come for three nights only. Cost is C$ 1,359 for the four night tour or C$ 1,019 for the three night tour all in. Limited to 7 participants. Contact Alan at Aurum Lodge to book. Only two spots left!

I snapped this shot of John Marriott this morning. I was out photographing some trees in the early morning light when I literally stumbled on John in full camo. I think I scared away his wildlife subject–he seemed a little ‘terse’ at my friendly hello but came around after I offered him a couple of granola bars. If you want to see John in action he is part of the SNAP! seminar coming up in Canmore, Alberta on April 24 and 25. The seminar is getting close to selling out, so if you want to see how John makes his amazing wildlife images, I suggest you sign up soon.
