Checking the weather radar as I was arriving to San Diego wasn't very pleasant. A massive storm front coming from Hawaii was impressive. The entire California coast was cloudy and if you follow golf, you know the tournament was also cancelled due to bad weather. But it doesn't end there. Three workshop participants (family) left me a voice mail telling me that they caught the flu!! Kindly, they agreed to stay at the hotel and not risk everyone's health. Thank you all of you a ton for that!

Day one was misty, heavily cloudy but with lots of birds around (see first image above). Gary, Karen and I got ourselves some large garbage bags and got on with the workshop. My first thought was.... Let's do some fill flash and for the next two days that's exactly what we did!

Our luck changed as we arrived to Joshua Tree. We had the perfect weather and were able to create some nice landscapes images (See above).

Overall, San Diego was the most challenging workshop yet (weather wise) but everything was possible due to the participants' positive attitude, spirit and open mind. My hat off to Gary and Karen!

There is no doubt in my mind that without using flash during our "challenging" workshop we would have come home with no usable images.

You be the judge!

Reply to this e-mail and let me know your thoughts!

Thanks!
