Spring 2022 Blue Ridge Parkway with Nye Simmons

May 5 - May 8


When the dogwoods have faded along with spring wildflowers, follow the progression of spring as it reaches the upper elevations of the Blue Ridge Parkway in early May. Early spring can be almost as colorful as fall with flowering maple and sarvis, and the translucent colors of freshly opened leaves. Viewing a scene can lead to “seasonal confusion”. This is one of my absolute favorite times and places to photograph — come find out why. Come join me, author of Best of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Blue Ridge Parkway Celebration for a creative journey in this photographer’s paradise.

This workshop will focus on landscapes both grand and intimate with an eye to expanding your vision towards creating art. The thrust of the workshop is on creativity, composition and the use of light. Many look without actually seeing. It is my mission on this workshop to help you see better. Come learn how to “make, not take” photographs. While there are a few iconic scenes to be explored, we will look for more personal images – the undiscovered icon — the great image that no one else has taken.
