This guided Lake District photo walk is a simple circular route around Buttermere – a flat low level walk on good paths approximately 5 miles in length.
Meeting in Buttermere village, we will head off and explore the shores of the lake, a jewel of the north west Lake District. There are splendid views down the water to Fleetwith Pike and Haystacks, last resting place of noted guidebook writer Alfred Wainwright, as well as across the water to High Crag, High Stile and Red Pike.
Buttermere’s two iconic tree shots are also there for the taking – the lone tree on the north western shore and the famous Buttermere pines on the south eastern shore – some of the few Scots pine trees in the Lake District.
As we continue around the lake, there will also be opportunities for woodland and waterfall shots, with a number of streams tumbling down from the fell sides into the lake.
Lake District photo walks are ideal for beginners looking to learn more about some of the basics of photography in a relaxed and informal environment, whilst walking amongst some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. They are ideal for those of you who wouldn’t necessarily want to participate in a slightly more intensive photography workshop.
Digital SLRs, compact system cameras, bridge cameras or even smartphones are all welcome, however those with the ability to take some manual control over the camera’s settings are likely to get most out of the day. Also, as this is the Lake District, mobile reception for immediate Instagramming cannot be guaranteed!
The walk will begin at 8.30am, and will take approximately 3 – 4 hours.
The cost is £35 per person, and there are a maximum of six places available on this photo walk.
