with photographer Tye Hardison Hidden away in the Four Corners region of New Mexico lie the Bisti Badlands and the De-Na-Zin Wilderness. For three days we will explore this 45,000 acre desert wilderness area that contains the eroded remains of an ancient inland sea with photographer Tye Hardison. The Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness is a rolling landscape of badlands with some of the most unusual scenery in the Four Corners Region. Time and natural elements have etched a fantastic world of strange rock formations made of interbedded sandstone, shale, mudstone, coal, and silt. The weathering of the sandstone forms hoodoos—weathered rock in shapes of pinnacles, spires, cap rocks, and other unusual forms. With very little vegetation, the color is from soils of reds, yellows, and blue-grey clay set against deep blue skies. Our challenge: the area is large, but the subjects are small, and you will learn to find their intimate relationship. Photographing the Bisti Badlands will require the ability to hike carrying your own gear for several miles over rugged terrain to explore the many unique formations within the wilderness. Weather permitting, we hope for one or two nights photographing the night sky! The workshop and tour will based out of Farmington, New Mexico and we'll spend three days exploring the Bisti and other unique formations in the area. The group will meet up in Santa Fe at noon on March 26 to carpool to Farmington and wrap up at noon on March 29.
