Samantha and I am headed off on a backpack trip to one of the most spectacular regions of the Canadian Rockies – Tonquin Valley. This trip is a mini-vacation before our busy fall photography instruction season. For this backpack trip neither of us is taking a camera! In over 25 years, I have not been on a trip to the mountains when I have not taken a camera. Sometimes you just have to leave the job at home. While we really love making images of nature, it’s a different kind of trip when you set out to with the main goal of making images. We’ll let nature talk to us without the barrier of a camera to distract us. And more importantly we’ll reconnect with our selves as individuals. As an added bonus, our packs sure are a lot lighter
Are there times when you leave the camera at home and just ‘be’ in nature or can you not imagine going out without your camera along with you?
