With just a few miles of countryside separating them, Glastonbury and Wells feature many photographic subjects. Wells boasts the glorious architecture of its Cathedral and Vicars' Close, which is said to be Europe's oldest residential street.
Glastonbury is world-famous and needs little introduction. Glastonbury Tor is photogenic all year round but only during a handful of times is it possible to photograph a full moon rising behind it.
The workshop will begin in the city of Wells where we'll photograph Vicars' Close, Wells Cathedral and the moat of the Bishop's Palace. The streets of the city are equally photogenic with many interesting features.
As daylight fades we'll head to the countryside to photograph the moon rising behind Glastonbury Tor. This is a challenging task which relies on sound technique and skills that aren't commonly used in landscape photography.
The workshop will start at 4:00pm in Wells. The workshop will conclude at approx 9:00pm when I will return the group to their cars in Wells.
This has proved to be one of my most popular workshops. The weather will dictate whether or not we get to photograph the moon but I know this area intimately and I will get the group to the best location possible. If the sky is too cloudy we will change plans and photograph a nearby landscape instead.
