Cape Cod Winterscapes
February 27-March 1
Come discover Cape Cod’s winterscapes–everything from the natural beauty of the beaches and marshes to shuttered business and deserted harbors and streets. We’ll also take advantage of the shorter day-light hours to experiment with low light photography, shooting some scenes at twilight and beyond. Along the way we’ll work on winter shooting tips, how to improve your eye by “seeing” a scene, low light photography and editing techniques to get your pictures looking their best. Offered through Cape Cod Art Association. Click for more information.

We will be visiting Iceland in early March when the weather is similar to the weather in the Northeast U.S., and when the amazing Aurora Borealis is visible in the evenings.
