PHOTOGRAPHY IN THE FIELD: PALOUSE FALLS

with Bill Peal

SATURDAY, 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM

JUNE 16TH

Grab your camera for a journey to the Palouse Falls in southeastern Washington. Travel with fellow photography enthusiasts on a beautiful drive along the Snake River, stopping periodically to photograph the rolling green hills of Palouse country and the unique geography of the scablands near the falls. You’ll learn about the great Missoula Floods that shaped the land at the end of the last ice age and practice techniques for shooting rushing water—and you’ll be amazed by the beauty of the falls, which drop 200 feet into a circular bowl carved out of the rock. The group will walk up an easy trail, taking photos of the incredible wildflowers and any critters along the way. Make sure your camera is charged, wear good walking shoes, and don’t forget to bring water and a sack lunch.  Space is limited so register soon!
