Joshua Tree National Park / Anza-Borrego Desert / Pacific Coastline
February 13-17, 2013
Joshua Tree National Park and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park offer a stunning backdrop of natural beauty and quiet majesty for this landscape photography workshop. Straddling the Mojave Desert and the Sonoran Desert, this expanse of serene wilderness holds flora, fauna, and rock formations found nowhere else on Earth.
February is the most comfortable time to visit the desert, when daytime temperatures average a balmy 70 degrees and spring wildflowers are likely to be in early bloom. Harry will guide you every step of the way, fine-tuning your technique and helping you get the most out of every shot. So grab your camera and prepare to fill your portfolio with one-of-a-kind photos you’ll treasure for a lifetime!
In Joshua Tree National Park, we’ll shoot spectacular locations such as Hidden Valley, Jumbo Rocks, Cholla Cactus Garden, Barker Dam, Keys View, Eureka Peak, and an optional hike up Ryan Mountain.
In Anza-Borrego Desert State Park — the largest state park in California — we’ll photograph rare desert spring wildflowers, and breathtaking overviews of the Borrego Badlands, climaxing with a sunset shoot overlooking Borrego Valley from the fabled Fonts Point.
We’ll wrap up this photo tour with a double-shot of the Pacific Coast — sunset and sunrise — at locations in La Jolla and San Diego, before your return home.

$750 per person. Includes transportation from San Diego to all locations, and all park fees.
