The GARNA Photography Club is organizing a day trip to the Great Sand Dunes National Park on Saturday, November 7. The group will be led by local photographer Ed Berg.

The group will meet at the Great Sand Dunes Visitor’s Center at 7:00 am to share a photography experience like no other. The focus of the trip will be on communicating our individual responses to the solitude, grandeur, and stark beauty of this unique natural setting. The combination of other-worldly land-forms, changing light, and near absence of vegetation creates a photographers dream and an extraordinary opportunity to see nature through different eyes. This event is a wonderful chance for photo buffs to share ideas, techniques, and experiment photographing this extraordinary area. Local photographer Ed Berg will share his experience of photographing and publishing his book of poems and photos to record his own responses to the Great Sand Dunes (Sand, Wind and Light). We will discuss and determine a date for a follow up program to share photos of the trip.

Basic park information, local weather, and directions to the Great Sand Dunes can be found here. It takes about an hour and 45 minutes to drive from Salida to the Sand Dunes. There may be a ride share and if so, they will leave Salida at 5:00 am. If the weather is uncooperative, the trip will be postponed.

If you are a GARNA member and are interested in joining the Photography Club, please contact Ann Graham at 303-601-3692 or anng9555@gmail.com. You can join GARNA here.
