  1. Here are a few more shots from the NM workshop. Since Eric put up a few from Bandelier, I figured I'd put up some from the Abiquiu region...

    Parts of the area are salted with layered Sandstone much like that in Southern Utah or Northern Arizona, but there is a chalk-white set of outcroppings on land surrounding the Dar al Islam mosque -- these are first:

    Plaza Blanca, ISO 200, 17-35 AFS @ 17mm, 1/20 @ f/16 w/ partial polarization

    Plaza Blanca, ISO 100, 17-35 AFS @ 17mm, 1/10 @ f/16 w/ partial polarization

    This one is a little surreal (a little?!?). What I did here was couple a Singh-Ray Blue-Gold polarizer that I borrowed from John Palmer on top of my B+W polarizer for a rather unusual effect.

    Plaza Blanca, ISO 100, 17-35 AFS @ 17mm, 1/10 @ f/16 w/ partial polarization and Gold overlay from the Singh-Ray

    Two views of the old log cabin on Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu,
    (shot about 1/2 hour before sunset):

    Facing Abiquiu Lake, with Cerro Pedernal in the distance on the right,

    Rear oblique, facing the red rock monuments behind
    17-35 AFS @ 32mm, ISO 100, 1/45 @ f/16

    Single-shot pano-crop of the red rock monuments behind the cabin
    17-35 AFS @ 17mm, ISO 100, 1/80 @ f/11

    Kitchen Mesa, Ghost Ranch, 17mm @ f/16

    Camposanto, Ghost Ranch, 17-35 @ 35mm, f/16

    Beautiful Ron
  5. Nice series, Ron. O'Keeffe would be proud, and I suspect she would giggle with delight at the Gold shot. Thanks very much for the workshop. Only problem was it was too short!
  6. Thanks, Gale.

    Hey David! You did very well (your processing skills were superb, by the way). Going to post some shots?
