Head wrangler Chuck Hummel did a masterful job wrangling cowboys, cowgirls and horses along with an awesome stage coach shoot, our workshop leader Scott Trees helped set up the shoots and as usual Mark Kettenhofen had his candy store of Nikon gear available for all photographers to play with. As always the drive was spectacular with the herd safely delivered to the home ranch for another year. Next year's drive is scheduled for the first weekend in May and you can be sure I will be back for more fun and games!

While in Colorado I also spent some time searching for birds in both the Craig and Walden areas and was richly rewarded with good views of Sharp Tailed Grouse, Swainson's Hawks, and White Pelicans among others. What a treat and wonderful way to spend time in nature. I have a gallery of Colorado birds available for your viewing pleasure here.
No trip to Colorado is ever complete without a visit to the vast and magnificent Sand Wash Wild Horse Management area to look for the wild horses there. The horses there were healthy and active with new babies and plenty of stallion activity.
In July I will be leading my very popular Basics of Equine Photography online course again. If you feel like you could use some help improving your equine photography skills then this is the course for you. We will explore everything from the very basics of camera technicals to capturing successful horse conformation, head shots and action shots. This is a fun, intensive and educational course which you will not find anywhere else. I hope you will join us!
