Moab’s unique combination of small resort town hospitality, beautiful red rock scenery, two national parks, and the cool waters of the Colorado River has made it one of the most sought after destinations in the southwest. This area is a paradise for photographers. Under conditions of constantly changing light, the varicolored landscape provides limitless photographic opportunities. We will be photographing a mix of iconic locations & also areas that are not as well known. Dan has spent lots of time shooting around Moab & knows the area well.
Located just 5 miles (8 km) north of Moab is Arches National Park, which contains the world's largest concentration of natural sandstone arches. Although over 2,000 arches are located within the park's 76,518 acres, the park also contains an astounding variety of other geological formations. Colossal sandstone fins, massive balanced rocks, soaring pinnacles and spires dwarf visitors as they explore the park's viewpoints and hiking trails. Less than an hour’s drive will put you atop the mythical sounding Island in the Sky, a remarkable district of Canyonlands National Park that makes you feel as if you are on top of the world. The views from the Island encompass thousands of square miles of colorful canyons, mesas and buttes. Canyonlands is the largest national park in Utah, and its diversity staggers the imagination.

Lodging is up to each individual participant. Dan will be staying at The Aarchway Inn and encourages participants to stay there so that it is easier for us to all convene and conclude the days activities with a minimum of travel. The Aarchway has given our group a great rate of $139.00 (+ taxes) per night. When making your reservation at The Aarchway you will need to call 435-259-2599 & tell them you are part of the Dan Ballard Photography Workshop. Please book your room as early as possible, but no later than August 19, 2016.
Transportation to & from Moab is up to each individual participant. There is an airport in Moab. Driving conditions into the National Parks will consist of mainly paved roads, so a standard car will be sufficient. When possible we prefer that participants car pool with each other. If you are willing to drive please let us know. Find more info about getting to Moab here: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/transportation/
