You're welcome Thomas. It was fun to share the whole experience up there with you both. It's something that has to happen again! There was an opportunity for total immersion in the photographic process with no worries about 'other' committments. I am definitely up for it again next year, and to meet Bill and Deisenlord during their winter excursion.
For next year though, it has to be a longer time that we go for if that's possible? Next time, I would say we leave on a Wednesday at midday. That's enough time to get there and set up camp and explore some shots for that evening, then we'd have Thurs, Fri, Sat as whole days to work with, then make a slow drive back like we did this year on Sunday.
