Workshop Report
Big Bend, October 2012
Thomas J. Avery Photography

__

Workshop Details:
Instructor: Thomas J. Avery
Assistant: Dave Chudnov
Students: 8
Dates: October 5 - 9, 2012
Focus: Landscape and Night Photography

_
We enjoyed five great days in and around Big Bend National Park. The skies cooperated for the most part. We had a few afternoons of nice clouds and light, and several clear, dark nights. The Milky Way was bright and beautiful.

A total of 13 people (included several spouses) enjoyed each other and learned from each other as we experienced the amazing landscapes of the Big Bend area. I cannot wait to go back! :-)
