Bosque del Apache Workshop (Part 1)

As I mentioned in a recent post, last month Andi and I attended Rick Sammon's Bosque del Apache workshop. It was a great workshop in a beautiful locations, and we had a fantastic time.

We arrived a couple days before the workshop and spent some time going out to shoot on our own. One of the places we went was to the National Radio Astronomy Observatory's Very Large Array, near Magdelena, New Mexico. It was an awesome day in many ways, including the weather. We had sun, rain, sleet, snow, and hail! It was epic!

For an Arcanum photography challenge, I just post-processed ten photos from a single roll of film, and I chose a roll from our excursion to the VLA. Since I took the time to process and post the photos on The Arcanum site, I thought I'd go ahead and post them here, too.

By the way, Rick asked Andi and me to write a guest post for his weblog! I've written an initial draft and passed it along to Andi. I'm hopeful that she will polish it up, we'll add some photos, and get it to Rick in the near future. When that happens, I'll be sure to post something here. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well.

One More Favorite Image

A few days after selecting and posting My 2015 Top Ten Photographs, I decided there was one more that I wanted to include. Rather than go back and modify my original list, I'm just going to add it here.

I made this photo in New Mexico on the day before Rick Sammon's Bosque del Apache workshop started. Andi and I had arrived a couple days early and decided to drive over to the Very Large Array. It turned out to be a spectacular day for photography. We had sunshine, rain, hail, and snow. We ended up in one thunderstorm three times. The constantly changing weather and light was amazing.
