May 2016 Post-Tour Report:

Tuscany, Italy

Italy welcomed Anya and I back with its inviting culture, stunning landscapes and delicious gelato. Our group was a fun mix of photographers from all over the US and even Canada. They were all ready to experience the best of Tuscany. We started in Florence with a gorgeous sunset and had lots of fun watching people, and photographing this wonderful city for 3 days. We then moved to the hilltowns of Tuscany where the flowers and wheat fields were especially awesome this year. The weather was absolutely perfect and only matched by the great food and enthusiastic company of our small group. Some of the most fun we had was simply driving the back roads and ‘getting lost’ while searching for S-curving roads, ethereal light, and poppy fields. Shown here is a ‘new’ S-curve that I had researched and managed to find thanks to a good navigator from Canada.

Cinque Terre, Coast of Italy Tour

A new tour offering for Don Mammoser Photo quickly turned into a new favorite. The Coast of Italy was too perfect for words. Our small group bonded immediately and the laughter and camaraderie was wonderful. I never wanted this trip to end. Coastal scenes at every turn, evenings on the rooftop, drinking wine, Hank’s cooking, exploding tomatoes, and driving the HUGE van all produced fond memories. We watched colorful sunsets over the Mediterranean Sea and often stayed late for night light photos. Time on the local trains and boats was a great way to see this area and I can’t wait to take people to this area again in 2017. The sunset photo shown here was taken just a 20 second walk from our accommodations on the Cinque Terre- excellent!

June 2016 Post-Tour Report:

Grand Tetons, Wyoming

My favorite mountain range met us with a mix of high altitude weather and that was a VERY good thing. Our small group experienced a perfect blend of cloudy and sunny days and this provided us with photo opportunities like crazy. Flowing clouds drifted out of the Tetons for the first days and then clearing skies gave us perfect reflections at a couple of my favorite photo spots. A nice group of easy-going folks from all walks of life made my job as leader very easy. Spring flowers added tons of color and made hyperfocal images great. On a couple of occasions, we were able to get off the beaten path and simply walk around to find images during those challenging times when the light was ‘difficult’. On the last day of the tour we were all reminded of the constant change in our environment when the pond I’d been to for years had 100% disappeared!

June 2016 Post-Tour Report:

Yellowstone National Park

Oh how awesome and amazing this park is! We stayed in the brand new lodging at Canyon Village and it was nice to be based inside Yellowstone National Park. Still we drove quite a bit and had lots of very early mornings. Of course it was worth it! Our great group was always enthusiastic, happy and ready to go. The light, the mist, fog, wildlife, colorful springs, geysers, mountains, lakes and more all look better in the morning and my group saw it all – and without the crowds of mid-day tourists too. From the eruption and rainbow at Old Faithful to the Bison very close to our vehicles while we were stopped on the road, to the light beams at the thermal features, and the incredible colors of Morning Glory pool, I loved every minute of this tour. Thank you to those who joined us! The image here is of Grand Prismatic Spring- the largest in the park.
