March Presentation – Photographing the Colorado Plateau

Join us March 17th, for “Photographing the Colorado Plateau”.

The Colorado Plateau spans an area of over a 100,000 square miles, and portions of the four states around the four corners area. It can be argued that the Plateau possesses some of the greatest and most numerous iconic spots for landscape photography in the world!

Joe Kovarik and Mike Ciletti have made several trips to locations throughout the area. Since the Plateau is so large, they have partitioned the Plateau into 4 smaller areas that can be used to plan and simplify the logistics of photographic trips.

They will cover iconic locations such as the White Pocket, slot canyons of the Escalante, the Wave, Cedar Mesa, Native American ruins, and Colorado National Monument area. Additionally they will cover more common sites in areas around Moab, the Grand Canyon, Canyonlands, and Monument Valley.

Besides covering iconic locations, they will also give hints on the special requirements of photography in the Southwest desert, night photography, and important considerations when exploring the desert. Of course, the entire presentation will include scenes from each of the sites they have visited, with comments on distances to the sites and good locations to use as a base of operations.

The Colorado Plateau is so massive that it is difficult to plan a trip to the area. Whether you’re a seasoned photographer who has already done some Utah photography or a beginner who is considering your first trip and not sure where to go, Mike and Joe will help you plan your next trip and inspire you with their images.

Joe Kovarik Slide Presentation

Joe Kovarik on the Colorado Plateau

As promised we were treated to a wonderful slide show by Joe Kovarik.  Joe included his exceptional images of The Wave and Other Places, but along with it he added tips for preparing the trip.  Since his research and explanations are so detail, he has given permission to post a mini-version of his presentation on the Lone Tree Photo Club site.

Thanks Joe!  We appreciate you sharing your knowledge and experience with us!
