Sand Dunes, Full Moon, Fantastic Rock Formations, and More!
Our 2010 Lone Pine to Death Valley workshop from April 26-30 with Alan Ross is an experience of extremes. Alan will take you through some of the most celebrated (and filmed!) landscape in the country. The rockscape of the Alabama Hills near Lone Pine will likely bring back many visual memories -- from a zillion Westerns, to Star Trek, to many car ads - to the boulders in Ansel's famous "Mt. Williamson" photograph. Aside from the rocks of the Alabama Hills, we'll also be able to visit the High Sierra cascades at Whitney Portal; the site of the WWII Japanese Relocation Camp, Manzanar; and of course, sunrise on the dunes in Death Valley. In 2010, we will have the added treat of evening moonsets on the dunes! Death Valley isn't only dunes, though, and we will work with volcanic terrain, the salt flats of Badwater and the wild architecture of Scotty's Castle and a visit to the ruins of an old Nevada mining town. In all, our travels will take us from 8600 feet at Whitney Portal to 282 ft below sea level, the lowest point in the Continental US!
This is a field photography workshop and is open to all formats and working methods analog and digital, black-and-white and color. Please go to our website for more information.
