California Central Coast: Butterflies to Elephant Seals
This is going to be fun!
Join us January 11-12-13, 2019 for an IMAGE Adventure up to the rugged and beautiful Central Coast of California where we will photograph varied wildlife and stunning landscapes!
This will be an amazing IMAGE Adventure where you will be photographing some very small animals and some very large ones. This is the season when Monarch butterflies spend their winter in a particular grove of trees near the town of Pismo Beach. We hope for a warm day that makes these colorful insects active. It is also the season when the huge bull elephant seals are coming ashore north of San Simeon. There is much fighting for territory between the Volkswagen bus-sized animals and the conflicts can become quite intense. There are also hundreds of newly born elephant seals nursing with their mothers. Don’t be surprised if you witness a birth!
Photographing beautiful landscapes is also on our agenda. We will capture the soft visual rhythms of the Oceano sand dunes and the rugged, dramatic coast of Montana de Oro. Several locations along Morro Bay will give us a pick of subjects for capturing spectacular sunrises.
We will be based for two nights in Morro Bay which will serve as our hub for excursions.
The cost for this 3 day adventure is $200.00 per person. Couples $150.00 each. Price includes guiding, image evaluation and discussion and photographic assistance throughout the 3 days. Not included are transportation, 2 nights lodging and meals.
