    Monterey and Point Lobos are the former stomping grounds of Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Wyn Bullock, John Steinbeck, and other famous and not-so-famous artists. Ansel Adams proclaimed Point Lobos as "the greatest meeting of land and sea" on Earth and Edward Weston (and his sons) cut his photographic teeth on these shores. It's a landscape of surf-tossed rocky coast with its edges worn away, revealing multi-colored layers and varied-shapes. Twisted cyprus trees withstanding the onslaught of Pacific winds add to the mythical appearance of the landscape.

    During the workshop we'll spend two full days and 2 half days exploring Point Lobos State Natural Reserve and possibly a bit of the Big Sur coast.

    The nearest airport is San Jose (SJC), about a 1.5 hour drive. San Francisco (SFO) is a 2 hour drive, and it's 3 hours from Fresno (FAT). We'll explore using our senses and perception along with camera technique to make better photographs

    Some trails to the beaches are moderately steep and footing is uneven, sandy, and/or slick both on trails and beaches (rocks) You should be able to negotiate this type of terrain to get the most from this trip. If you have questions, please contact me prior to registering for this trip. There is a minimum of 4 for this workshop and a maximum of 8.
