Let's meet at the Chautauqua Ranger Cottage about 30 minutes before sunrise. We'll drive separately (unless you are alone- my car only seats 2), up to the top of Flagstaff Mountain. Our first stop will be a rocky outcropping overlooking the Rocky Mountains where we will watch the sun rise and create a beautiful glow over the hills. I'll help you compose beautiful sunrise shots and answer any questions you may have about how to use your camera.
Next we will hop back in the car for a 5 min drive back down to a trailhead. From there we will go on a 1-2 mile loop hike through a magical ponderosa forest where we will pass a couple other great viewpoints for photos of the mountains.
Finally we will drive back down to Chautauqua and I'll show you my favorite (and less popular) spots to shoot the infamous Flatirons!
NOTE: if you want to make this a self portrait workshop, let's chat! I can bring props + tripod to help you compose self portraits. I charge an extra $30 fee for this lesson.
