Provence Photographic Workshop Tour July 2-7, 2017

Gordes-Provence

Gordes-Provence

Built on the foothills of the Monts of Vaucluse, facing the Luberon, Gordes is one of the most well known hilltop villages in the region, and one of the most beautiful in France. Its houses and buildings of white stone root themselves into the sharp cliff of the mountain, its labyrinth of narrow cobblestone streets delights visitors and provide photographic opportunities.

The Luberon was one of my favorite shoots with W Stephen Johnson​ Gwyn Marschall Williams​ Jane Wilhelm​ Robert Parry​ Elizabeth Clasgens​ and Deborah Bondar bringing enthusiasm and laughter to the the hilltop villages and lavender fields.

Pastel Sunset – Cinque Terre, Italy

I was looking through my images of Cinque Terre and wanted to share this wonderful sunset I took during one of the workshops that I teach every October. I take the groups on a wonderful hiking trail to this vantage point above Vernazza for sunset. I love this soft pastel light when the sky is painted with purples and reds  as the day turns into night. After a day of shooting and hiking in the Cinque Terre I have am always ready for a wonderful meal in one of the small restaurants. This area with the moisture from the Mediterranean is famous for its Pesto which is my favorite but you may prefer the seafood pasta prepared with fresh fish that the locals bring in daily.
