South of the Canadian border, pockets of water surrounded by low mountains, pine forests, and wildlife.
Last year I spent a few days with family on the shores of Garfield Bay. Only one of the many beautiful locations nestled around Lake Pend Oreille.
In the falling sun
where lively wings stand still
melts the colour of an enchanted day
Found a little something to edit & share while sifting through the archives. One of the best things about photography is the ability to pay a virtual visit to moments, places and faces after the time has marched on. Especially when, for whatever reason, you can't get out to shoot!
Cheers to you!
Wherever you are today~

Free Star Photography Tutorial + Scouting & Planning for Star, Milky Way and Night Sky Photography Video Series
I just arrived in Death Valley, California to shoot the Milky Way & scout for some new Night Skies Photography Workshops & Tours for early 2016.
During the next 10 days the moon phase is perfect for shooting the Milky Way, night sky & stars.
If you’re interested in learning how to plan for your next shoot under the stars check out my free tutorial linked below. I’ve also included a link to my free star photography tutorial which teaches all the basics of shooting:)

Star Trails Photography Tutorial
This was actually my first Milky Way photo from way back in the day. It was taken in the North Cascades of Washington State near Picture Lake. Shooting with a Nikon D800 + Nikkor 14-24 f/2.8 the settings were f/2.8, ISO5000, 30 seconds.
7-8 pm TONIGHT!
Join me at Gallery Art Est for a quick chat about my perspective behind the lens and the reasoning for many of my aesthetic choices. I’ll give a few insights into the way my techniques have developed over time and share stories about the people, locations and adventures beyond the frame. Not one to ramble on, should be plenty of time for Q&A.
If you’re coming along, dress warm! It’s a big space and a little off the beaten track. Hot tea, cocoa & Champange for those who make the effort 😉
If you're in Sydney feel free to stop in at Art Est. and have a look. Should be around over the next week if you you'd like to say hello in person and are unable to make the opening event, workshops or Artist Talk on Saturday.
The new, unpublished & fully re-mastered favourites are on display in large print at Gallery Art Est. for the remainder of May. More information at www.gretchenchappelle.com
