PODAS winds down. Thursday was the last day of the PODAS Death Valley experience. After an afternoon of working on images attendees were asked to contribute images to the workshop slide show and also to provide 2 images for their 30×40 prints. We had a final farewell Steak Bar B Q that evening. And, believe it or not we were in the desert and it rained. What are the chances of that happening? After dinner we all returned to the seminar room and we had closing ceremonies. Each attendee received a group shot and a certificate for participating. Many attendees purchased a Phase One system while at the workshop. The first few purchasers were rewarded with special prizes like books and prints from the instructors. Following the formalities everyone settled in for a 20 minute slide show featuring the highlights and works on the attendees during the last few days. Then we all said our good byes. One thing is for sure we all have a number for new friends. The event was a special experience for all who attended.
