Course Breakdown

Our journey begins by climbing Bowfell to witness a breathtaking sunset over Scafell and Scafell Pike. As we descend to Three Tarns, we capture the tranquil reflection of stars on the still water of the tarn and photograph the night sky. Continuing our descent via ‘The Band,’ we pause to capture the enchanting Milky Way. The course encompasses planning, equipment, camera settings, focusing techniques, composition, light painting, and post-processing.

This hands-on approach provides participants with a rich understanding of astrophotography, ensuring you leave not just with stunning images but also with the knowledge to continue capturing the beauty of the night sky independently.
