Because this is a photo tour, the priority of this trip will be focused on making the best photographs you can possibly make. This means we’ve structured the itinerary to coincide with the best lighting, i.e., sunrise or sunset shooting. For this tour and time of year, sunrise is around 6:30 AM and sunset is around 8 PM. If we choose to shoot at sunrise, we will be eating breakfast after the shoot.
