Birds of Bosque del Apache Photography Workshop

As dawn rises above the distant mountains and the sky brightens, the sound of geese and cranes begins to fill the sky. There is simply no other place like Bosque. It's like the Grand Canyon, you have to see it, experience it, to believe it. The light in New Mexico is everything and more than Georgia O'Keeffe painted and showed the world. For a birder or a bird photographer this place, at this time of year, is mecca. The birds are close, they fly by all morning and evening long, and the light is just plain wonderful. In this four and a half day workshop, you will experience the best Bosque has to offer. We will arrive before dawn each day and experience the Snow and Ross's geese blasting off as they go to the cornfields for the day. We'll spend each morning photographing geese and cranes, then take a break in the middle of the day and return for the cranes and sunset.  Four and a half days of photography, nine shooting sessions, four mornings and five afternoon/evenings. The workshops will begin in the afternoon of December 11th and end on December 16th, 2017 with departures for home. This workshop is scheduled for the second week of December to avoid the large groups and crowds that congregate in late November, we'll be able to move around more and get in better positions for the best shots. Don't get lost in a big crowded workshop, this one is limited to 6 participants, you'll learn more, and photograph more birds. 

December 11th - 16th, 2017       $1,200
