Rocky Mountain National Park is open year-round, but the events and activities in, and around the park, change with the seasons.

This course by the Rocky Mountain Conservancy will teach photographers how to make spectacular landscape photographs at night. The class will focus on how to focus at night and what camera settings to use to achieve correct exposure and reveal the largest number of stars. Students will learn how to set up, shoot, and stitch together a complete Milky Way panorama, which may have an angle of view of 180 degrees left-to-right and 90 degrees top-to-bottom. After the classroom session, we'll head up Trail Ridge Road to shoot sunset and the soft magic of twilight. When the sky becomes completely dark about two hours after sunset, we'll work on shots of the Milky Way over Longs Peak.
