Winter Photography field seminar: Register starting on October 1st

Winter at Mono Lake is a very special season, complete with snowy Sierra peaks, poconip fog that coats tufa towers in rime ice, and bright bluebird days. Spend a weekend based in Lee Vining for the Mono Lake Committee’s annual winter photography field seminar to take advantage of the many photographic opportunities that winter provides.
