The forests and woodlands around Millinocket Maine are a vast and rugged region in any season, but especially so in winter. Snow, ice, and wind sculpt the landscape into dramatic scenes waiting to be seen and discovered. Winter is a challenging season for photography, but the image rewards can be uniquely beautiful for every hearty photographer. Just outside of Millinocket, The Golden Road serves as an unpaved highway into the heart of some very remote areas. Each day we will leave the comfort of our private, cozy cabins and explore areas along the Golden Road for inspiring views of Mount Kathadin, forests, wilderness ponds, the Penobscot River, and the always present chance of encountering a wide array of wildlife.
We will maximize our time in the field shooting a multitude of subjects and there will be an online image review January 16th in the evening.
