Ausable Chasm and Countryside Photography Tour

We begin this unique tour in the Ausable Chasm coined as, "The Grand Canyon of the Adirondacks". During this fun and educational photo tour, we will explore the visually stunning Inner Sanctum trail.  Learn fun and interesting facts and history of Ausble Chasm as well as photographically capture panoramic vistas, river views, intricate rock formations, fauna and wildlife.  We will also cover fun photographic techniques like: slow shutter capture to create velvety water flow images, how to create dynamic compositions, and how to shoot with the final image in mind.

After our 1.5 hour tour of the Ausable Chasm, we will venture out in to the surrounding countryside.  Commuting in tandem vehicles, we will have wonderful photo opportunites as we travel quite country roads with views of Lake Champlain, experience a quaint country farm and apple orchard and have access to views of Poke-O-Moonshine mountain.  While enroute, we will have the opportunity to enjoy a bit of "Agro-Tourism" as we visit North Country Creamery, producers of great organic cheeses and dairy products made from the milk of grass fed cows, Ausable Chasm Brewing and Mace Chasm Farm and Butcher Shop.
