Elderhostel “Photography in the Southwest” Workshop Day 1.

The Elderhostel “Photography in the Southwest” workshop was based at Kelly Place B&B  just outside of Cortez Colorado. This is a great location in McElmo Canyon, quiet and remote. It borders Canyon of the Acients National Monument. The following images were taken in and around Kelly Place.
