Mesa Verde Fall Photography Workshop

The Mesa Verde Museum Association is Offering a Special Fall Photography Workshop in Mesa Verde National Park. This is your chance to come away with once-in-a-lifetime images of several of Mesa Verde's stunning cliff dwellings. Participants will visit sites around the park at times designed to capture ideal lighting conditions, and will work on compositional skills for compelling images. The group will visit some archeological sites at hours when they're closed to the general public, and will also visit Mug House, a beautiful cliff dwelling that is not normally open for visitors. Pacing will be leisurely so everyone gains as much as possible from their experience. For further information including photographic equipment needs and rates, or to register, visit the Mesa Verde Museum Association website at and click on "Institute," e-mail the Association or call toll free 800-305-6053.
