Sunset, Cox Bay

Not quite home yet from the Pacific Rim Workshop that Brenda Berry and I led but I already miss the place. The combination of great subjects and a fun, funky town give this workshop a wonderful sense of place and makes for a terrific workshop experience.

Everyone on the workshop got some really nice images. I know this because Brenda and I saw them in the critiques we did everyday and we talked about them longingly afterward. I know things are going well when I pine for the images my students are producing and I did a lot of pining last week!

Even the weather, which is supposed to be cloudy and generally grumpy this time of the year (all the better for old-growth forests and tide pools) was amenable with sunsets the first three nights and clouds on the days we went into the forests.

All the photos posted here were taken during the workshop. I’ll post more when I return to my office and relocate my head. And just in case you might be interested, Brenda and I will be doing this workshop again next year in May.
