    Hi Cliff, sorry about the pace, it was faster than I would have preferred. The mixup at the first meeting spot made us get a little behind the planned schedule, and the weekend Napa Valley traffic didn't help. I will be sure to start earlier next fall when shooting in the Napa Valley (to account for weekend traffic), and to make sure the pace is the usual relaxed pace I like to go at. It was great shooting with you all.

    It was great to learn some new spots to go that I did not know about. He answer some camera questions with his wealth of knowledge. I would take a workshop from him again. The only thing I did not like is the pace was a little to fast mostly do to traffic. But not a big deal
