New Mexico, one of the federate States in the southwest, is maybe the least known and visited of the other four (together with Arizona, Utah, and Colorado), but it is well known to landscape photographers. Some of its most popular sceneries play an exclusive role on the planet. Part of its recent history (military experiments, famous off-limits areas, extreme research programs), with a past that is strongly connected to the culture and spirituality of American Natives, have created a sense of mystery and magic, easily perceivable by those who can question themselves and welcome the new when travelling. This workshop, organized with the same care and passion as always, will keep this leitmotiv during a road-trip that will lead you to a “Land of Enchantment”. This unique scenery will stir up new emotions in those who can feel its depth. As usual, the continuous technical/creative support, the tour leader sense of belonging to these locales, the right logistic support, the “on the road” atmosphere will make this workshop an unforgettable journey, a life experience beyond its educational and photographical purposes. Besides exploring the landscape, we will visit the great city of Santa Fè, the second artistic center of the country, and its magnificent museums, photo galleries and Adobe architectures. We will also visit Albuquerque, the capital city, where we will drive along a historical stretch of Route 66.
No difficult walks are planned. Possible easy walks in the nature for about 3 hours.
