October 10-24, 2020
Indian Summer in New England is a photographer’s dream! On this two-week photo tour, we will explore the regions breath taking landscapes and towns. From the lighthouses along Maine’s granite coastlines to the beautiful gorges of New Hampshire’s White Mountains and the quaint villages of Vermont. We will visit Walden Pond, Franconia Notch and Acadia National Park while keeping photography as the main focus of our journey. Lodging will be provided at comfortable inns and motels.
This tour will involve some short hikes to reach the best locations for photography, but most spots will only be a short distance from our vehicles. In addition to photographing stunning landscapes we will also focus on rural scenes and detail work. Christian and Regula have photographed the New England for several books and know the region intimately.

Important: The autumnal discoloration of the trees in the eastern US varies every year due to weather conditions. We choose the best time for the fall colors but can not guarantee that we have ideal conditions in 2020. So we will also experience rainy days and perfect weather is not guaranteed. The weather and climate in New England is very volatile. Of course, it is precisely this inconsistency that makes photographing interesting, as it allows us to experience dramatic light situations as well.
We reserve the right to adjust the program if necessary.
