A 5-day Wildlife Photography holiday to Northumberland's photogenic coast and the Farne Islands, focusing on photography of seabirds and castles.

5 days from £895(flights not included) Land Only Price: £895 SRS: £0

The Northumberland coast is photogenic — with mile upon mile of long sandy beaches and big skies, its broad vistas and moody, changeable cloud formations are pleasing to the eye … and the photographer’s lens! This tour will be led by award-winning photographer Robert Harvey, an expert in landscape and wildlife photography. We’ll make daily excursions from our comfortable hotel base in search of the region’s wildlife, landscapes and castles. Our visits to the Farne Islands will provide excellent opportunities to photograph a tantalising array of seabirds at close range, from exquisite Arctic Terns to the ever-photogenic Puffins. Back on the mainland, our time will be spent photographing some of the county’s iconic castles, including Bamburgh, making the best use of light and tides to capture atmospheric images.

It was great being part of a small group and our leader Robert Harvey gave us good guidance on camera settings which I found very helpful. A most enjoyable holiday with photos I am pleased with and happy to share.
