Join us: San Sebastian Spain Next April

The New York Times just posted a wonderful article about San Sebastian, Spain -- where our photo tour is headed next April.





To quote the Times:
"TO visit San Sebasti√°n, on Spain’s northern coast, is to fall in love. The first sight of the shimmering scallop-shaped bay, replete with crescents of golden sand and turquoise waves, will sweep you off your feet. Pairing this natural beauty with the unrivaled local cuisine — from decadent Michelin-starred feasts to delectable bite-sized pintxos (Basque-style tapas) — may leave your head spinning. A spruced-up seaside promenade, a renovated museum and a forthcoming culinary school all add to the city’s allure. But this love affair doesn’t have to be a fling. In June, the city secured a coveted designation as a 2016 European Capital of Culture, ensuring that it will put its best foot forward for years to come."


Christine Irvin and I have partnered with Fresco Tours to offer a photo tour of the Basque country, in the northeast corner of Spain.  This is not the hot plains of Spain:  the Basque country is green and cool, with great food and wine.

The tour begins at San Sebastian, and then will lead us through a wonderful variety of landscapes.

We will be able to photograph ocean vistas, small fishing villages, a portion of the Camino de Santiago...
And, of course, beautiful Bilboa, with a tour of the amazing Guggenheim Museum.

Fresco Tours is run by an experienced, enthusiastic, knowledgable, fun crew. The cost includes lodging, all meals, transportation in a minivan during the tour, daily photo critiques, and, when we get home, a gallery show at RiverWinds Gallery in Beacon, NY and a published book encompassing the best photos taken be each person on the tour.

For a detailed itinerary, pricing, and, of course, to sign up before the tour sells out, go to

Next year: Spain!!!!  We deserve some fun...
