Capture plunging cascades and lupine blooms dotting the landscape in sugar hill, nh.

Join David for a full-day workshop in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, where you'll be shooting waterfalls along the Falling Waters Trail. Then, capture the Lupine bloom in the iconic area known as Sugar Hill. 

We will begin the day with breakfast at the famous Polly's Pancake House, then begin a hike to the waterfalls. We will see the plunging, 20-ft Stairs Falls, the 60-ft cascades of Swiftwater Falls, and the main attraction, the 80-ft fan-like, Cloudland Falls. We will work on getting to know your camera, composition and especially on how to use polarizing and neutral density filters, and, to create beautiful waterfall landscape images. After a break, we return to Sugar Hill tour many of my favorite locations for Lupines, which should be at their peak at this time of year.
