Durango Photo Train & Telluride Fall Colors 2020
Date: September 27, 2020
Fall in southwestern Colorado is a place of rare beauty as the aspens turn from green to shimmering gold and Telluride is the best place we’ve even seen for these beautiful colors. But before we head over to Telluride, we’ll start our week off with the incredible Durango & Silverton Photo Train. This special train only runs two weekends each year and is designed specifically for photographers.
Throughout the days trip up into the San Juan mountains, the trains lets us off in beautiful scenery and then backs up around a turn. With a sound of the whistle, the train comes steaming back as we get shots that are truly unique in spectacular settings!
After spending Saturday and Sunday night in Durango, we’ll head over to Telluride. Imagine a beautiful western town in a box canyon surrounded on three sides by towering mountains. There are three “fourteeners” (14,000+ ft. mountains) including Mt. Wilson, wilson Peak and Mount Sneffles along with a grouping equally majestic peaks featuring the beautiful Ajax Peak right at the end of Telluride’s main street.
We’ll photograph around the many beautiful viewpoints around Telluride as we spend two nights here. On Wednesday we’ll head northeast around the mountains past the Dallas Divide and Ralph Lauren ranch on the way to Ouray, CO – named the “Switzerland of the America”. We’ll photograph the scenery and perhaps take in the waterfall hidden in a canyon. An the way south back to Durango, we’ll stop along the way as we cross the Molas Pass at 11,000 feet and bask in the beauty of this scenic countryside. We’ll spend the night in Durango Wednesday night.
On Thursday we’ll have a breakfast wrap-up meeting and check out as we head out having enjoyed a spectacular week of scenery and photography. Transportation, Food and Lodging are not include. This trip does include two classroom sessions for image editing and enhancements. The photo train is optional at an additional $229 per person.
The trip is limited to eight participants – send us any questions you might have!
