Our Hartland Peninsula photography tour to North Devon will take place in December with Adrian Beasley. The Hartland Peninsula is at the western end of the North Devon coast. A rugged and exposed region of towering cliffs and secluded bays. The cliffs at Hartland Quay display a spectacularly folded sequence of alternating grey shales and sandstones known as the Crackington Formation that was deposited in the Carboniferous period approximately 320 million years ago.

The South West coast path follows the cliff edge here but there are a number of options to descend to sea level and experience the rock structures and see up close. At low tide, the finger-like rock formations extend into the sea creating amazing leading lines. In December, sunrise is inland but the sun sets out to sea, if the sky is clear!

Hartland Peninsula Photography Tour - North Devon Landscape Photography

The Hartland Peninsula is at the western end of the North Devon coast.  A rugged and exposed region of towering cliffs and secluded bays.  The cliffs at Hartland Quay display a spectacularly folded sequence of alternating grey shales and sandstones known as the Crackington Formation that was deposited in the Carboniferous period approximately 320 million years ago. The South West coast path follows the cliff edge here but there are a number of options to descend to sea level and experience the rock structures and see up close. At low tide, the finger-like rock formations extend into the sea creating amazing leading lines.  In December, sunrise is inland but the sun sets out to sea, if the sky is clear!

We will be staying at the remote Hartland Quay hotel for 4-nights. This will allow for 3 full days to explore the coast on our doorstep. We will have printing facilities on hand to allow us to develop and print our work during the stay and give us some weather flexibility.

Hartland is rugged and can be cold, wet and windy in the winter. The walking can be quite strenuous with plenty of climbs and descents via, sometimes muddy, footpaths. We will use our feet to get to all the locations, so this tour is for individuals with a good level of fitness. Having said that, we are there to experience and photograph and being based at the Quay, there won’t be a rush for the mini-bus to the next location, we can take our time.

Adrian will meet the group at Hartland Quay Hotel at 4pm Monday 7th December. The workshop will finish at 4pm Friday 11th December.

A GOOD WORKSHOP, WELL ORGANISED AND TUTORED

Derek Murrells - 8th Feb, 2020

A well thought out & well balanced workshop. Excellent tour leader in Adrian Beasley, very knowledgeable of locations, photographic technique & post processing.

John Fontana - 6th Feb, 2020

An excellent leader balancing photography in the field with knowledgeable technical instruction indoors. He was never intrusive but always about for help. He did not take a camera himself, devoting his time entirely to the group, working on with us after the evening meal. The accommodation was excellent though restaurant prices there meant we ate out locally, but were transported there. We were taken to several photo venues in the area. If there were any criticism at all, it might be that perhaps there were too many, allowing only short periods for photography on a couple of occasions. However we were given a real flavour of photo potential in this part of Britain. The leader was an enthusiastic facilitator who enthused passion for his black and white photography, that passion rubbing off on all the members of the group. This was an inspiring workshop, and one cannot ask for more than that. Highly recommended.
