Here is the last post about the Catskill Photographers Weekend that I led from May 14-16. (If you want to read about the trip in order start with ‘Scouting in the Catskills’ and work your way up.) Sunday on the tour is usually a self-guided day but we decided to go out as a group […]

The horizontal shot includes a […]
