My name is Jackie Crivello and some time ago I spoke at your meeting and
had a lovely time doing so. I wanted to make members aware that I am
conducting a very affordably priced photography workshop in Silverthorne
this September. I will have live birds of prey including a Bald Eagle and
Harris Hawk in free flight. 30+ horses and cowboys on an historic 1800's
ranch on the Blue River at the base of the Great Divide. There will be a
Native American in full war dress with war painted horse. The instructors
include famous photographers from the area and Winston Hall of Nikonian
This opportunity has been rescheduled for Saturday, April 6 at 9:30. This is an opportunity to help out FAS with their website and get some good photos of dogs in training with their owners.
Prior to the Tips and Techniques meeting this Wednesday, March 27, Stan Hill will give a short presentation on an opportunity to photograph sage grouse in Walden, CO (North Park) on April 20 & 21.

Bighorn Sheep Field Trip Scheduled Saturday, Nov. 19
This will be our 4th annual Field Trip to photograph Bighorn Sheep in the rut. As in past years we will meet at Starbucks along I-70 at Downieville and break into groups of 10 or so to drive to the best viewing locations. I will be scouting to map the prime locations Friday morning so we'll have a fair idea where to find the animals on Saturday.
Here's the tentative Plan for Saturday:
• Meet for coffee at approx. 6:30 AM at Starbucks I-70 at Downieville; leave Starbucks in 2-3 groups by approx. 7:00 AM.
Trip one: Weekend of Aug. 5th -- Lake City-American Basin (wildflowers), Animas Forks (ghost town). Very little hiking, all photo ops near the vehicle. Stay in Lake City, plenty of B&B's, motels, and campgrounds.
Trip two: Creed (old mining town w/mines) and the Wheeler Geological (like a small Bryce Canyon) and the turning of the aspens. Probably the first weekend in October. Stay in Creed or a nearby campground.
If you are interested in either trip, please email Bill Vogel
