Peak District Waterfalls and Woodlands in Autumn

Saturday, October 22nd from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm. £99.00 per person. Fully booked.

Saturday, November 19th from 9.00am to 4.30pm. £99.00 per person. Places available.

These intermediate level landscape photography courses have both been timed to take advantage of the wonderful colours of autumn, and will be held on the moors around Fox House (close to the border between Derbyshire and Sheffield). Both courses are accessible by public transport.

The October 22nd course will run from 10.00 am to 6.00pm, so will include photography during “golden hour” right up to sunset time if the weather conditions are suitable.

The course on November 19th features a whole day’s photography, starting just after sunrise at 9.00am and finishing after sunset at 4.30pm. 

This part of the Peak District offers a wonderful range of subjects – including waterfalls, colourful oak and birch woodlands, old millstone quarries, and natural gritstone outcrops. If we are lucky, we might well get some mist in the morning – this is one of the best spots in the Peak District for temperature inversions! For those interested in close-up and macro subjects, there should be plenty of interesting fungi at this time of year as well.
