“Immersed in the tranquil quiet of the fresh winter air, surrounded by majestic columns of ice and rock while the soothing rush of water below you gently nudges your mind, body, and soul into a state of peace and calm. It’s at that moment when the image is ready to be captured.”
My winter photography hike or snowshoe tours through the Ausable Chasm are a unique, and truly memorable experience combining natural beauty with photography. During this exclusive tour I will provide you with opportunities to photograph truly amazing natural vistas, details in nature and the natural life that lives in the Chasm. I will also be available to provide photography instruction on your equipment as well as, the art of image capture and creation. On our tour we will not only explore but photograph the rock and ice formations along the popular Inner Sanctum Trail and Rainbow Falls, photograph the “small and big” of our forest trail, capture the interplay of light, shadow, and composition as it pertains to image capture and, much more.
You will need snowshoes or ice cleats for safety, depending on how much ice and snow have accumulated. Rentals are available for $10 per day if you do not have your own.
I recommend having a D-SLR or film SLR with a lens or lenses capable of capturing wide angle to moderate angle images, a zoom lens, (a macro lens is also great to have,) a tripod, extra batteries, film or digital media, and appropriate winter gear. All tour options take about 2 hours and you should expect moderate winter hiking conditions along the trail.
