In Ken's words: "A thriving herd of hundreds of wild horses roams the floor and hills of the Adobe Valley. Situated between the snow-clad slopes of two major mountain ranges and blessed with a thriving equine population, the Adobe Valley is rich with opportunities to make memorable wildlife and landscape images."

Wild Mustang Photography with Ivana Crone
May 31- June 3, 2021
and June 8-11, 2021
Trip meets at River Springs.
Join a 4-day trip tracking elusive mustang herds into the high desert between the dramatic snowy ranges of the High Sierra and White Mountains. Award winning wild horse photographer Ivana Crone is giving a workshop on how to professionally capture the untamed mustang spirit. She will guide you very close to roam between the wild horse herds, both on foot and horseback, and discuss how to apply anticipation of wild horse behavior to proper camera settings. The advantage of this trip are some remote high destinations accessible exclusively on horseback. The resulting views and images of the wild mustangs set against the towering snowy peaks are truly spectacular. Ivana Crone displays her images in galleries over 3 states and her photo “Little Love Bite” won First Place at the Alpenglow Gallery Grand Opening, Colorado 2018.
