Black Hills Photographic Society member Ted Ayers took attendees on a photographic journey through the natural beauty of selected areas in the Southwestern United States. Ted’s presentation entitled “The Sierra Nevada, The Great Basin, The Colorado Plateau and The Range of Light in Color” was a multi-projector 35 mm slide show accompanied by music. The Southwestern United States is a very diverse landscape of rugged high mountains, extensive deserts and high plateaus. The presentation included images obtained over a period of many years. Most were captured in very remote areas accessible only by hiking and/or backpacking long distances.
