Other Photographic Subjects at El Rancho de las Golondrinas

It’s the details that bring any museum, especially a living museum, to life.  Throughout the 200 acre site of El Rancho de las Golondrinas you will find many wonderful photographic subjects which are not detailed in any guidebook but make the whole experience that much more enjoyable.

The museum is only open for self-guided tours June through September, Wednesday – Sunday, 10am to 4pm.  This means that the light for photography is not the best but with a little perseverance and the use of some of the excellent plug-ins that are available for Photoshop, some interesting images can be made.

Being that you tour the site by foot and the exhibits cover most of the 200 acre site, you may not wish to carry a tripod to capture bracket sets for HDR images.  All of the images in this post, and the previous ones, are from single RAW files.  You definitely need to bring a lot of water though, as you will be out in the sun for most, if not all, of the six hours the site is open – there is that much to see and capture.

  3. I particularly like that last image of the three. It somehow gets over the heat of the day, the light is bright and the detail excellent. Looks like a fascinating place

  4. What a terrific set here Mark, I was just recently shooting old wagon wheels at a museum myself recently, so that first shot really jumped right out at me. Love your work, my friend!
