"Spring Waterfalls at Ricketts Glen" (with Mark Bowie) May 30-June 2, 2013
860 Kidder Street
Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702
Ricketts Glen State Park in northern Pennsylvania is home to arguably the single most beautiful collection of waterfalls in the eastern United States. There are 22 named waterfalls, wild and free-flowing through rock clefts, along two branches of Kitchen Creek. The creek descends some 1,000 feet over three miles. The highest waterfall is 94-foot Ganoga Falls. However, it’s the sheer variety of falls, in such concentration, that makes this place so special. Also, the region lies at the intersection of northern and southern hardwood types, resulting in a great diversity of trees (including a stand of old-growth forest). After an initial orientation session on Thursday night, we will spend two full days in the field exploring and photographing the Ricketts Glen waterfalls. Individual field instruction will be provided as well as indoor instructional sessions and critiques.

"Waterfalls and Wine Country"
October 17-20, 2013
Waterfalls and winemaking are what make New York's Finger Lakes region famous. Add in Autumn: pastoral, tranquil, and clothed in blazing color. What a fantastic combination for a workshop! Some of the most scenic waterfalls in the country reside here. There are over two hundred in the region, including Taughannock Falls, the highest in New York State. Each fall has its own character; some drop like bridal veils, others sluice over ledges, and some, like those in renowned Watkins Glen, carve dramatic chasms. Most of our photo time will be spent taking advantage of opportunities provided by the waterfalls near Ithaca and Watkins Glen. In addition, we will mix in a visit to a local winery or two, to break up our day and give us additional photo possibilities.
