Landscape South East
with Colin Westgate
Wednesday 21 November - Monday November 26 2018. Hotel Based, 5 nights (6 days) (7 places)
The 'forgotten' landscapes of Sussex and Kent are virtually on our doorstep, but how often do we actually get to photograph them? Colin Westgate lived in this area for many years and thus knows it well! There is some spectacular scenery in the South East and this trip will take us to some iconic locations These will include the beaches and dramatic chalk cliffs of Birling Gap, Hope Gap, Cow Gap and Cuckmere Haven, all with superb views to the Seven Sisters; Beachy Head and the lighthouse; the South Downs at Folkington; the downland village of Alfriston; the unique quirky beach at Dungeness; the historic town of Rye with its famous Mermaid Street; and Bodiam Castle. If we are lucky, we may even experience a storm at Newhaven, where huge waves smash against the harbour wall to provide some fabulous images - if you can stand up in the wind! We will also spend a day in the beautiful Sheffield Park, near East Grinstead, where the spectacular autumn colours should be at their best, and we can perhaps try some 'impressionistic' effects using on camera diffusion.
We will be based in the Seaford/Newhaven area, which is an ideal centre for many of the locations. Travel will either be by minibus or car sharing.
Price £675 (deposit £100) Single supplement £105. (7 places) Price includes dinner, B&B, and minibus/car travel in the area and is based on a shared room and a supplement is payable for single occupation
