Big Trees of the Bayous
There are few wild places in North America more magical than the hidden bayous of Louisiana and the last remaining stands of old growth cypress trees. Join David Cobb and Christian Heeb during the cool fall season to explore and photograph these hidden gems of the Deep South, where you'll spend the mornings and evenings exploring and photographing the "Big Trees of the Bayous."
Overnight at the world-famous Oak Alley Plantation with its iconic Antebellum house and grand life-oak trees, and have the opportunity to photograph this location before and after regular visiting hours. We'll also join local guides to search for bald eagles, alligators, and snapping turtles while cruising "Cajun Country."
The trip will round out with a foray into America's charming and picturesque city of New Orleans.
