Autumn landscape photography course near Sheffield.

The course is accessible by public transport.

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. For those interested in close-up and macro subjects, there should also be plenty of interesting fungi at this time of year.

The course on November 13th will run from 10.00am to 5.30pm- which is just after sunset time. To allow all participants to get plenty of individual attention and for adequate social distancing, this course will be limited to just four photographers, with places costing £95.00 each.
