To get to the falls in Johnston Canyon, you have to walk about 2 km. That sets this part of the workshop apart from the rest. Two kilometers might not sound like a lot, but add the weight of a full package of photography gear, snacks and water, and things start to become more difficult. It is worth though, and as one person that started enjoying nature by hiking, I have nothing to complain about. It also helps you become more aware of the surroundings. Sometimes when photographing the grand scale landscape, we forget about the little details that make it come alive. It also meant it was relatively crowded; many people where hiking through the canyon along ourselves, and when we were photographing the falls from the bridge, the footsteps of those people faintly moved the bridge, not hard enough to ruin long exposures, but still I worried none of my pictures would come out nice. In the end, it all worked fine.
