Philmont, through the lens of trained photographers

Point your camera in any direction while exploring Philmont, and you’re bound to get an image worth keeping.

Natural beauty envelops you there.

But hand your camera to a trained photographer, and the resulting images beg to be framed and prominently placed on your living room walls.

Don’t take my word for it, though. Check out the visual evidence in the images below.

These perfect pictures come from last month’s inaugural Philmont Photographic Workshop (read my posts about the event here and here).

Like you, I’m bummed I wasn’t there in person, but thanks to BSA photographer Randy Piland, we get the next best thing.

Randy collected 150 of the greatest images from that weeklong workshop. The slideshow features a mix of magazine-worthy portraits, compelling detail shots, and, of course, incredible landscapes.

If photography is your passion, you’ll want to keep an eye on Bryan on Scouting next year for info on the second edition of the Philmont Photographic Workshop.

But for now, escape with me to Philmont …
