Invites you along on a photographic adventure...
To the 'Land of Waterfalls' ...
In the 'Cradle of Forestry', Brevard N.C.
Come along for a photographic immersion in Waterfalls and Wildflowers...
This workshop has come to be an annual event around here. And one of nature photographer, Kenny McKeithan's most popular every year. McKeithan has been taking a half dozen photographers on a trek each year since 2002 to Translavania County NC for this springtime adventure. Each year is bigger and better than before. The trip encompasses a list of eight must see waterfalls and an endless list of botanicals. Other sights you might encounter along the way are unplanned and total surprises. You might see a cabin or ramshackle hut grown over with vines that is just waiting to be captured. That mystery is what keeps McKeithan coming back year after year. All stops are easy to get to so intense hiking need not be a concern. I have it on good authority that May is the perfect time to photograph spring arriving in the mountains. Now that summer has arrived at the shore, take the opportunity to experience spring twice this year!

*** UPDATE ***
Upon posting this blog I received this email that I thought I'd share.
I have been receiving Kenny's very informative newsletters for the last couple of years and when he announced the "Land of Waterfalls" workshop to be held in June 2008 I quickly signed up. It turned out to be a rewarding 3 day learning experience. My Nikon SLR was pretty new but Kenny's extensive camera knowledge taught me many features of that camera that I wouldn't have learned otherwise. Most helpful was learning his techniques for shooting waterfalls in Pisgah National Forest. Although this is an expansive area Kenny knew every remote road and where to take us for our shooting sessions. How many of us have the discipline to get up at 5 AM and travel up to the Blue Ridge Parkway for sunrise shooting. Well, in this workshop you are glad you did. Another opportunity to learn from Kenny's extensive photographic knowledge. I hope I have sometime a chance to attend another Palmetto Photographic Workshop led by Kenny McKeithan.
