I had a lot of fun at Dan Sniffin and John Barclay’s Eastern Sierras photography workshop but still felt I needed more help and instruction and so when I saw they had a spot open for their Death Valley workshop, I grabbed it! So for this workshop, we spent 5 days shooting the area from sun up to sun down. Hoping for some clouds to add drama, we went to Zabriskie Point for sun rise on three separate mornings. Another morning we were up and hiking across the valley floor in pitch black darkness, that is except for the light of head lamps and flashlights, to be out on the sand dunes by Stove Pipe Wells before the first light of the rising sun. And the 5th morning we spent at Scotty’s Castle bright and early before the crowds came. And in between all that, we went to Rhyolite, sun set at the sand dunes, Artists Palette, Twenty Mule Team Canyon, and side trip to photograph the flowers in the morning sun. It was a great trip with a great group and I can’t recommend Dan and John enough. They do a great job organizing their workshops and really know their stuff. And so you can be certain, the next time my schedule and bank account lines up with one of their workshops, I’ll be there!
