On friday evening we arrived to Schroon Lake village, then hurried over to the town of Adirondack to photograph the shoreline of Schroon Lake at sunset. On Saturday, we witnessed an incredible sunrise over Schroon Lake, then had a bountiful home-made breakfast at the B&B, including home-baked muffins, coffee cake, omelettes, pancakes, and more. Since the peak foliage was a week or so earlier than usual this season, we drove on a large loop day tour around the Port Henry and Ticonderoga regions, where there was still very bright autumn color. One of my new favorite views is from Belfry Mt Firetower, after an easy .3 mile walk, where we photographed snow-dusted Adirondack High Peaks mountains beyond the yellow autumn color of the forests below. More highlights this day included macro photography of frost on flowers, Mt. Defiance's view over Lake Champlain and Fort Ticonderoga, farmscapes around Ticonderoga, and leaf covered country roads near Lake George.
p.s. - Here's a link to the Flickr photo album my group decided to form, featuring photos from the weekend to show and share with each other!

To set aside time and immerse yourself in the craft of photography amidst the serenity of the central Lake Country is, to us, the ultimate Adirondack photographic experience — and the essence of our signature Retreats. API director John Radigan and staff instructor Mark Bowie guided participants on this week-long artists' retreat, where we explored in-depth the beauty and emotional allure of this special place. Participants worked on daily assignments, which culminated in a presentation of their week's theme. Viewing others' work through their eyes is an incredible way to enhance one's own photography. To track our progress images were printed and posted daily and an e-book showcasing everyone's imagery and writing was produced.
The Woods Inn, in Inlet, was once again our home. With gourmet food, fantastic hospitality and a waterfront location offering so many photographic possibilities, they are the perfect hosts.
The Retreat format is an unrivaled success and the heart of our offerings. Watch for more of them as next year's schedule is announced. And sign up as soon as possible; they fill quickly!
