Wildflowers: In The Mountains of Colorado
Our epic snowfall in Colorado has us drooling for this summer’s wildflower season. We will explore and photograph at some of the most prolific locations for Colorado Columbine, Paintbrush, Marsh Marigold, Brook Cress and other high altitude flowers. Chase the Light Photography will escort you to our favorite locations outside of Silverton, Durango and Mancos, Colorado.
We meet in Durango, Colorado for an introduction to Wildflowers Photography, then carpool up into the mountains for a day of photo lessons. Bring your tripod so Kit Frost can teach you to properly compose, expose and enjoy the wilds. Our lessons include the intimate moments of a single Columbine as well as the grand landscape of wildflower, middle-ground and mountains.
