Winter Digital Photography 2022

February 11, 2022 - February 13, 2022

Spend a weekend at picturesque Shrine Mont, located in Orkney Springs, VA, surrounded by beautiful mountains, a clear night sky, and lots of natural beauty to capture!

Finally take some time away from the everyday isolation and creative boredom, to enjoy creating art with like-minded photo enthusiasts, in a safe and socially distanced environment.


The weekend starts on Friday evening when we gather at St. Andrew’s Cottage in the late afternoon for introductions and personal project announcements.  Later we will relax with the log fire burning and dinner served, all with appropriate social distancing.

What to bring

  • Masks – required.

  • Warm, comfortable clothes

  • flashlight

  • blankets

  • pillow

  • towels

  • any beverages/snacks to share
