DeTour Workshop 2022 Recap

Every year I look forward to the DeTour workshop and every year I always leave with full memory cards and great memories. This year was no different. I'm going to make the writeup on this shorter because I've got more images to share and don't want to take up too much of your time, so let's get to it.


This year we had a small group as I had a couple last minute cancellations, but that didn't stop us from having a great time. On Friday, I arrived around noon to lots of dark gray clouds in the sky. Rain was in the forecast. Rain with lightning and thunder, to be clear. I didn't drive through rain, but it was coming. Instead of setting up my tiny one-man tent, I opted to car-camp that night, which turned to be just comfortable enough in my Ford Fusion to do that all weekend. The rain did eventually come. By 4pm, the sky turned nearly black. Rain was coming down hard and the thunder was rolling. A friend of mine who goes by @donhalbert_outdoors joined us for the weekend sans photography as he has done in the past. We sat under his canopy tent drinking freshly roasted coffee that I hand-ground right there and brewed in my aeropress watching the rain come and go. It was a great way to ease into the weekend. By the evening, the rain had passed, my attendees Rob and Susan arrived and set up, and we actually got time to scout and shoot around sunset time. Here's some images of mine from that evening, but I also encourage you guys to check out what Rob and Susan have been posting lately from that time. Good stuff al
