Red Canyon Petroglyphs. Nikonians Eastern Sierra Photography Workshop — Day 1.

A few images from the first day of of the Nikonians Eastern Sierra Photography Workshop with Michael Mariant. I actually missed the first locations that Michael took the group to earlier in the day since I was traveling from San Francisco (visiting my group as part of my day job). Michael provided me with the GPS coordinates for the Red Canyon Petroglyphs so I could meet up with the group for the petroglyphs and then sunset over the Owens Valley. I took the following images of the petroglyphs soon after meeting up with the group. You can tell that there has been vandalism as folks try to add there own “art” or have taken parts of the ancient art away.
