Mountaineer Photo Excursions | Warmer Weather!

Warmer Weather!

March 08, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Okay…are we ALL tired of the snow and cold this winter?  Sure, winter is a beautiful season, all of its own.  However, we’re a full week into March, and just getting past one of our biggest winter snow storms of this season!  I know that I am ready for some warmer weather, and more opportunities to get outside with my camera. 


In April, Mountaineer Photo Excursions will be hitting the beach!  This Workshop is SOLD OUT, and has been since the first of the year, but we are looking forward to making the trip, getting our toes in the sand, and experiencing the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  “Herons and Horses and Bears! Oh My!”  Indeed!


We juggled our schedule somewhat, because we had originally considered going to the Outer Banks in August.  However, we determined the crowds were too large for us to visit the variety of places we had in mind.  So, the Outer Banks moved to Spring, and our original Spring location has been bumped to 2016.  (No, I can’t tell you!)


As a result, we searched for a new Summer location, and thanks to some friends in Ohio, found a true “hidden gem!”  We’ll be heading towards Youngstown, Ohio, and will be visiting the Mill Creek Metro Parks!  Flowing water, flowers, cascades, trees, songbirds, bridges, bald eagles, ponds, lakes, beavers….and more! 


Our Workshoppers that join us at Mill Creek will learn about landscapes, macro, and wildlife photography.  All of this in a series of connected venues, which allows everyone to concentrate on the subjects they like, while having the chance to try something new.


As always, we look for these locations that have a lot to offer, and the Mill Creek Metro Parks will certainly be an exciting addition to our Mountaineer Photo Excursions list of locations.  We also try to keep our workshops priced reasonably, and we are offering this one for $219.95.  Check out our workshop page for a few more details.
