Landscape photography workshop | Harthope Valley
Date: 18 August 2018
Time: 1.30 – 8.00pm
Max. group size: 4 participants
This is an afternoon/evening workshop in the Harthope and Happy Valleys in the northern Cheviot Hills in the Northumberland National Park near the town of Wooler. The workshop is timed to take advantage of the warm afternoon light and the sunset.
We’ll start the afternoon in the Happy Valley, following the course of Coldgate Water through deciduous woodland. From there we’ll move to the Harthope Valley, stopping off along the way as we gradually wind our way down the valley to the public road’s end near Langleeford. The day will end at sunset near Housey Crags, a distinctive feature of the Harthope Valley. From Housey Crags are fine views of Cheviot, Hedgehope and Scald Hill. August is heather time in the Harthope Valley, when the moorland is covered with this photogenic plant. It’s one of my favourite times of year and one of my favourite Cheviot valleys.
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you’d like to take part in this workshop or if you’d just like more information about this or any other workshop.
This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience and ability, from beginners to more experienced photographers. The small group size allows David to devote ample time throughout the day to each individual participant’s needs and priorities.
Bring with you the camera equipment you already own. A tripod will be useful, but don’t worry if you don’t have one: it is not essential and we should be able to lend you one for the afternoon.
There will be some walking over uneven ground and steep slopes, so a good degree of fitness will be needed. Suitable outdoor clothing and sturdy walking shoes or boots are highly recommended.
