Based in Munising, Michigan
Join Richard Day and Hank Erdmann in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan photographing in the Hiawatha National Forest and in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore shooting sunrises, sunsets, forest lakes, early autumn color, waterfalls and the Lake Superior shore.
We’ll be able to photograph from sunrise to sunset as the days grow shorter in the early autumn. We’ll photograph small interior lakes and forests in the Hiawatha with lots of opportunities of all genres; landscapes to intimate landscapes and close-ups. At Pictured Rocks we’ll photograph the shoreline of Lake Superior, streams entering the lake, sand beaches, waterfalls and more.
