During our UP workshop we visited one of our favorite locations but it was sunny day and the light was killing us!  This pine forest often has a few very colorful small softwood trees scattered among the pines and it is,  on a cloudy, overcast or foggy day a fantastic location.  On this day it was snot!!!!  looking at the shot above everyone was asking is there “Anything we can do?”  I suggested we all was around to the back side of the tree so that the tree trunks would all be back lit and the leaves of the red tree will be too!  The shot below was the result!

 

 

Much better!  And now some images of what you can get when the conditions are perfect, from previous trips to the UP!

 

 

All shoot within the past four years of trips to the UP!  Perfect light, perfect conditions and great subjects, can how can you loose!  It’s why we keep going back!

I just returned from a week in the UOP of Michigan.  Jack Graham,  Rick Browne and I had a great time with 7 fantastic students.  When we arrived on Saturday before the event started Sunday night,  the color was disappointing, but in just two days it turned around fantastic!!!  Thanks for answered prayers!  Above, an aerial view shot witty DJI Air 2S drone.

 

 

When shooting an early morning at one of our favorite spots, a fisherman cruised through the frame trolling, he barely disturbed the still water and made for a great shot!

 

 

The UP around Munising is dotted with a  lot of small lakes that make perfect places too capture the fall color in the still waters!

 

 

Individual trees can make for a great subject scattered through the dense north woods of this region!  Above and below.

 

 

 

This was our fourth straight year to be in the UP at this exact time, all of them have been wonderful!  Hope you can join us next year!

 

Blessings,
