Sand Wash Basin

Hello folks, as a board we plan to do fall color events for Sept.-Oct. both as colors hit the mountains and then again in town. I know several people have already explored Sand Wash Basin, some have not been able. My friend and former member of TMCC Cindy Buller and I have the next weekend planned to go from this coming Thursday through Monday. We will be staying in Craig overnight. Doug and I found and stayed at the “Elk Run Inn” in Craig for only $65.00 a night was a good place for a great deal. Anyone is welcome to join us we will be meeting up with several wild horse enthusiasts and advocates while touring around the area all of which are amazing photographers. Former member & friend Debbie Rudd will hopefully meet up with us, and we tentatively plan on seeing horses in the Piceance herd on Monday. Most of you may not want to be out of town this far, or this long, but we wanted to extend a welcome to club members who have been dying to see them, all are welcome. These horse’s terrain is much less obstructed than those on the Bookcliffs. Last year we saw well over 100 horses in a day. I can safely say you will see horses as over 900 are in the Basin. Please get in touch via cell, messenger or on this message if you are interested in joining us for all or part of our trip. We will regroup each morning in Maybell, I hope that if you’ve always wanted to do this that you will join us Sept. 6 through Sept. 10th. Here are some shots from our last trips.

Think Before You Shoot

This is an excellent book for photographers of all skill levels. It’s a short book with simple, easy to follow suggestions for making stronger photographs. The author, Roxanne Overton, was one of our competition judges a couple years back, and I’ve always admired not just her images, but her thoughts about photography. It’s available for $6.99 as a Kindle book through Amazon, or as an iBook at Apple iTunes.
