This Milky Way Adventure actually includes a LOT of Landscape Photography as well! We have sunsets from the Rim up at Crater Lake! Then amazing and beautiful locations out on the Oregon Coast in Bandon and Secret Beach! I just LOVE these places! If we get too many clouds, then Landscape is our PLAN A and we go out for sunrise too! But if the skies are clear as they can be! We will have amazing nights of Milky Way Photography at these three locations!
Crater Lake this year we start at Crater Lake. Two nights to give us two terrific chances at getting what is my absolute FAVORITE Milky Way Panorama! The views from the Rim at Crater Lake are crazy impressive. I just love this place! If you are energetic enough, which I won't be, you should try and see sunrise from up at the rim at least one of the mornings we are there. We start each night focused on PANORAMA and ONLY PANORAMA. We keep shooting different compositions of Panos from the Watchman Overlook and then once the Milky Way gets high enough in sky that the pano is tough to capture, we move north along the Rim clockwise to a few other favorite places to capture at Crater Lake. Depending on the group's fatigue, we will hit up to 5 locations on the Rim.
Secret Beach is a little bit of a drive from Crater Lake, but I don't hesitate at all to say it is worth it! The Oregon Coast is a beautiful location for both Landscape and Milky Way Photography. Secret Beach is amazing especially with the moon that we have this year! We can use the Moon to light up the sea-stacks and trees! This could be the chance for my best ever image from Secret Beach! We are going to love having our foreground landscape lit up by the moon!
Bandon is a location I have gone to twice a year since 2017! I love lining up the Milky Way with the shape of the Wizard's Hat and the Guardians of the Wizard! These sea-stacks are much more different than the sea-stacks at Secret Beach and we get a completely different feel being out literally IN THE WATER with the sea-stacks and lining up the Milky Way over them. I absolutely love this place. It almost is redundant for me to say that I love the place, but I wouldn't do workshops here if I didn't love going to these places! I can't wait for you to fall in love with them too!
