Silk Road – Desert Photo Tour – 13th to 18th Nov 2017 Fully Booked | 15th to 21th April 2018 Available
At Available Light Images, we aim to lead you on tours that have been meaningful to us on our own creative journeys. We want to share with you the experiences that have changed our lives. This remote area of northern China is famous for the Silk Road and the world’s highest static sand dunes. This massive area of sand is so remote and so intense, we have designed a short, sharp trip that we hope will deliver the creative epiphany that we have had.
We will visit hundreds of square miles of gigantic dunes, rising to over 1640 feet above a series of crystal clear lakes. The geometry and scale of these makes for limitless incongruous and beautiful photographs. We’ll be camping out in the dunes and can explore them at our leisure.
The second area is another large area of geopark, where the striated coloured rocks make for more amazing images.
This is a unique photo trip, taking you into the heart of the Gobi Desert, where you can loose yourselves in simple, delicate creativity far from the modern world and its distractions. For us, our last visit there was life-changing and we’re still re-evaluating our own art, creativity and life goals. Join us on this trip of a lifetime.
