    I love eating there, too. But is it open yet after their fire?

    As for film, you might want a color film in addition to Velvia, but that is up to you. If it has to be Velvia, perhaps the think about the 100F, as it more easily captures a high-contrast range.
    Problem is, Mesa Verde is too far for the given amount of time.

    Really wish I could go there. Maybe another trip.

    How would you say Velvia 50 renders such a situation. I've already purchased my film. Any suggestions as to shooting this film in such locations?

    We still don't know what part of northern NM you will be in, so Shiprock came up. Mesa Verde is very close if you are in Shiprock, is what I said in response to the person who suggested it.

    As for Velvia, it depends on the light. If it is contrasty light, and you expose for the lighter areas, you sacrifice detail in the darker areas. You can overexpose and pull process to lower contrast. I know from experience that this works very well with 100F. It should work with 50 as well, though I cannot say from experience.

    Sorry about that. The area I am currently looking at is from Cimarron to Cuba and as south as Santa Fe.

    Personally I think your trying tom place the chicken befire the Egg

    New Mexico is very varied, you should just go to the places you think are most interesting, the photographs are secondary. Then if the area sparks something creative youn start shootiong.

    Unless I've been to an area before I don't go with pre-conceived ideas it doesn't work. Just go, walk, OK it's the US so drive slowly, see what floats yer boat
