The Peak District - August 9th - 11th

Image Seen Workshops

Britain's very first National Park; the Peak District, is thought to be the second most-visited national park in the world. An area of great diversity, it is conventionally split into the northern Dark Peak, where most of the moorland is found, and the southern, more gentle, White Peak, home to Dovedale amongst other beauty spots. It is an area of great natural beauty made up of rocky outcrops, heather covered moorland and wonderful limestone dales. The varied landscape and rich heritage provide for some unrivaled scenery and make this area a wonderful option for the landscape photographer.

This photography workshop offers a great opportunity to capture the beauty of the Peak District when the heather is in flower. We will visit some of the region’s most scenic locations, including Longshaw Estate - a great venue with a number of subjects to photograph, including the remains of quarries where abandoned mill stones remain, dramatic panoramas and the lovely Padley Gorge with its ancient oaks, mossy rocks and tumbling streams. Stanage Edge, the largest and most impressive of the grit stone edges, provides for some impressive landscape images especially when illuminated by the evening sun. We’ll also visit the superb locations of Baslow and Curbar Edge as well as Mam Tor where we will take in some wide reaching views of the Hope Valley below. Further south, we’ll take in the ever lovely Dovedale, as well as Monsal Head - a famous Derbyshire Peak District beauty spot with a magnificent view down Monsal Dale and up the Wye valley.
