I am finally back from my three week departure to the San Juan mountains of Colorado! This time was a wonderful and very memorable journey, because I got to see our PL team members (more to come) and I met wonderful people in our fall workshops. Although we did not see any snow this year and we were greeted by pretty warm temperatures, the fall colors looked great and I was able to take some great shots of sunrises and sunsets in the area. Here is a grand view of Wilson Peak and the surrounding area at sunset:
I am currently in the beautiful San Juan Mountains of Colorado, getting ready to conduct my annual Colorado Fall Workshops. Although some of the areas have not turned in their full fall color glory yet, it is just a matter of days at this point to witness the stunning transformation of the scenery before winter rolls its cold in. A breathtaking visual spectacle; something I love indulging myself in, together with some of the most amazing people from all over the world – our readers who will be arriving later this week to join the workshops. As I was trying to catch up with work earlier today, I realized that I was about 30 minutes away from sunset. I looked outside and was disappointed to see a bunch of thick clouds covering the sky. At first, I thought I would just stay and work, but then the thought of potentially losing a sunset opportunity crossed my mind, so I grabbed the Sony A7R II (which I am currently testing) and off I went to quickly get to the first overlook of the glorious Mt Sneffels.
We are once again happy to announce the Colorado Fall Colors Workshop, which will be taking place in one of the most picturesque locations in the world, in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. A number of our readers have been inquiring about this workshop already, so after working out the schedule, I decided to open up the registration and provide some details about the workshop. This photography workshop will take place from September 24-27, so we are adding an extra day to the workshop to see and photograph more beautiful locations in the area. Get ready to learn a lot, shoot a lot and enjoy quality time with like-minded people that share your passion. And best of all, we will be doing it in a vacation-style environment, not in a typical hotel!
This is a guest post by one of our Landscape Photography Workshop participants, Emily Fagan (check out her excellent RV blog), who sent me the article along with some pictures, after attending our workshop earlier this year. She sent it to me a while ago, but after getting swamped with too much work and trying to balance things at home with a new baby in our house, my mailbox eventually got flooded with emails and I did not have a chance to get to it for a long time. I hope you enjoy this guest post and get to participate in our future workshops!
